*Link to complete webinar registration will be sent out prior to event.
The City of San Diego Climate Action Plan (CAP), adopted in 2015, calls for creating more energy-efficient buildings and ordinances to conserve and disclose energy use. In pursuing its CAP goals, the San Diego City Council passed the Building Energy Benchmarking Ordinance in February 2019." This ordinance allows the City to collect this energy data locally and in accordance with Assembly Bill 802. Additionally, it sets building owners and managers on a pathway to track energy consumption and help identify savings opportunities.
In this session, you'll hear from City of San Diego staff regarding the development of this ordinance and which buildings apply. We'll also be highlighting one local nonprofit, the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, that has taken strides over the years to manage energy consumption and prioritize energy efficiency projects to help them reduce operating costs. Finally, we'll have CSE walk you through the steps of checking energy data in Energy Star Portfolio Manager and completing a live demo of submitting this documentation to comply with the City's benchmarking ordinance using the Food Bank as the case study.
