The Conference includes keynote speeches from industry leaders speaking on important energy topics, live technical sessions, live panel discussions focusing on the interests of energy efficiency and energy management professionals, and daily on-demand recordings so attendees can view at their convenience.
buildee CEO & Co-Founder Oliver Davis will be presenting at 130pm EST on December 2nd during the Cybersecurity & Energy Security track. Oliver's presentation is entitled "The Evolution of Building Energy Use Policies: Incentivize to Penalize".
The presentation will cover how Commercial building energy policy is a rapidly evolving component of the energy and emission reducing initiatives of major cities. Over 30 cities across the United States have enacted policies with the intention of bringing the commercial building sector into the 21st century, and part of the effort to curb energy demand.
While some cities have simply adopted benchmarking policies, which require building owners to report their energy usage in comparison to their peers, other cities, like New York and D.C., have made their efforts more aggressive with emission limits and strict penalties for non-compliance. This panel will give a broad overview of all methods of energy and emission regulation currently in municipal legislation: benchmarking, auditing, and performance targets. The panel will then discuss
the data and results surrounding these policies, and in this way evaluate best practices for the future of efficiency in the built environment of cities. Accomplishing these goals will require actionable data and a public/private partnership involving city governments, utilities, service providers, policy advocates, and private building owners.
