The New York City Local Law 84 Benchmarking Report (August 2012) is the first analysis of New York City benchmarking data collected as part of Local Law 84, which requires all privately owned properties with individual buildings more than 50,000 square feet or with multiple buildings with a combined square footage of more than 100,000 square feet to annually measure and report their energy and water use.
Nearly 1.8 billion square feet of built space, which is equal to the built areas of Boston and San Francisco combined, was benchmarked in this effort. This constitutes the largest collection of benchmarking data gathered for a single jurisdiction and documents the current state of energy consumption and performance in large buildings in New York City. This data will also help identify opportunities to gain efficiencies. Similar reports will be produced on the benchmarking data compiled in each of the coming two years.
