Owners of private Orlando buildings over 50,000 square feet are required to track energy and gas output to obtain an energy benchmarking score annually. This information must be publicly disclosed.
Track the energy and water consumption of buildings with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to measure their performance. This is the first step in the mandatory benchmarking process.
Comply with the requirements of the Orlando City Council and supply whole-building energy and water data, as well as natural gas usage, by May 1, for 12 months, from January-December.
From May 2020, any buildings covered, that score less than 50% will require energy audits or a retro-commission service to identify shortcomings and improve building performance.
All design will be done as per International Building Code(IBC).
