Building Automation Coupled With Energy Management Solutions Achieve Greater Results
In 2013, the City of Boston enacted the Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO) requiring all large- and medium-sized buildings to report their annual energy and water use to the City. That information is then made publicly available. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent, such energy reporting and disclosure is intended to encourage building owners to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy costs, and utilize incentives such as Renew Boston. Read on to learn how these incentives coupled with building automation and energy management solutions can achieve greater results.
