Energy efficient practices among building owners and developers are on the rise. In fact, New York City has unveiled a new plan that will require buildings to comply with new energy related regulations by 2025.

The Greener, Greater Buildings Plan, comprised of four individual regulations, aggressively addresses energy waste in its existing structures. It will require building owners to benchmark energy usage, abide by a series of local energy laws, receive energy audits, upgrade lighting and install electric sub-meters.

Green Tech Media recently published an article that gave a more rudimentary explanation of each regulation:

Here’s an excerpt from that article:

  • Local Law 84 — Benchmarking: “Benchmarking” requires companies to measure their electricity and water consumption annually. The law standardizes the measurement process and requires the sharing of data through an online tool for comparison with other similar buildings in the city. Starting in 2018, owners of mid-size buildings between 25,000 to 50,000 square feet will be required to benchmark.
  • Local Law 85 — Local Energy Laws: Property owners must abide by a series of local energy laws, known as the New York City Energy Conservation Code. Renovations and building alterations also must meet current standards.
  • Local Law 87 — Energy Audits and Retro-Commissioning: Law 87 mandates that buildings of more than 50,000 square feet receive periodic energy audits, in addition to retro-commissioning. Much like benchmarking, energy audits are intended to give building owners more insight into their energy consumption.
  • Local Law 88 — Lighting and Sub-Metering: This regulation mandates that any large non-residential buildings upgrade their lighting system by 2025 to meet the energy conservation code, as well as install electrical sub-meters to provide monthly statements.
