New York City requiring building energy use to be posted online

October 31, 2011 |

Owners of every New York City commercial and residential building larger than 50,000 sf will have to post each building’s energy use online by 2013.

Commercial buildings will have to post this information in 2012; residential buildings will be given until 2013. Such a move could have a transformative effect on the city, environmentalists and architects say, giving valuable information to tenants while prodding owners to invest in cleaner, greener design.
