Earlier this month, the Lower Mainland Local Government Association (LMLGA) of British Columbia, representing a large proportion of British Columbia’s population encompassing the area between Whistler, Hope and Tsawwassen, endorsed an energy benchmarking resolution.
If approved by the province, the resolution will empower local governments to require annual reporting of building energy use data to allow for comparison benchmarking between similar buildings. Further, the resolution will grant local governments the authority to enable the public release of non-confidential and non-competitive building energy benchmarking information.
