OBEC Dinner - Energy Reporting Requirements

January 13, 2016

Energy Reporting Requirements (ERR) have been adopted in jurisdictions across North America and around the world. These policies require building owners to measure and report their annual energy use to the local governing body. These data allow governments to understand how energy is used in our built environment and, depending on the level of disclosure, can allow building owners to compare their performance against that of other buildings or even allow property investors or lessees to factor building energy use into their decisions.

ERR is coming soon to Ontario! In October 2015 the provincial government introduced amendments to the Green Energy Act, 2009 that, if passed, would enable the implementation of the Ministry of Energy's proposed large building energy and water reporting and benchmarking initiative as early as Fall 2016. Bryan Purcell, the Director of Policy and Programs at the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, will speak to OBEC members about how this initiative was developed and how it will help Ontario's large building owners manage their energy and water consumption and save money on their utility bills.
