What did we accomplish in 2020?
Building Energy Performance Policy regulations finalized
Green Building United members participated in numerous stakeholder engagement sessions to help craft regulatory language for the Building Energy Performance Policy (BEPP.) The bill, passed by City Council in late 2019, requires all non-residential buildings of 50,000 square feet and larger to either certify high performance or conduct a “tune-up” to improve efficiency in existing building systems.
What are we working on in 2021?
- Ensuring our members are educated and prepared to comply (building owners/managers) and perform tune-ups (CEMs and PEs) with the Building Energy Performance Policy.
- Advancing a suite of climate bills in Philadelphia City Council.
