For most building professionals, energy efficiency describes the ratio of energy output (heat or electricity) over the amount of fuel consumed. But what if energy efficiency was also defined by measures of economic output? By layering the world’s largest building energy benchmarking database onto the world’s largest commercial tenant database, interesting perspectives on measuring “energy efficiency” have emerged.
A recent report by Buro Happold entitled CO2: Linking NYC Energy Database to Tenant Contribution to Economy explores correlative data linking commercial buildings’ energy usage and the economic contribution its tenants create. Please join Urban Green Council for a technical discussion on Buro Happold’s reporting methodologies, findings and preliminary conclusions.
