Webinar #23: DCBIA and AOBA: Building Energy Performance Standards Info & Advocacy Session

The District has pledged to become carbon neutral and climate resilient by 2050. Slashing carbon pollution requires both imagination and bold action to transform our buildings. This includes improving the efficiency and health of existing buildings, repowering them with clean, renewable energy, and constructing new buildings that generate as much clean energy as they use.

Set by the Clean Energy DC Omnibus Act of 2018 and administered by the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE), the Building Energy Performance Standards (or BEPS) program is a regulatory tool and program to help meet these ambitious green building and climate goals. BEPS sets a minimum threshold for energy performance for buildings, which impacts design, construction, and operation of every building in DC over 10,000 sq. ft., including commercial office, multifamily affordable housing, multifamily market-rate housing, schools, retail, and hospitality.

The proposed rules for BEPS are now open for public comment until March 4, 2021.
