HOW CLEAN IS YOUR BUILDING'S DIET?

In addition to analyzing the new 2015 benchmarking data in our NYC Energy and Water Use Report, Metered New York—Urban Green Council's online tool to measure energy performance in NYC's buildings—has also been updated. And for the first time, the site now includes the proportion of each energy type that benchmarked buildings use. Understanding this energy mix can help owners compare their use to similar properties and guide retrofit decisions.

See our blog for more information about the newly available data, and visit the updated Metered.nyc to see where your building fits into the energy mix.
