Hear from a panel of regional experts to learn how the construction and real estate industry is working to address transparency in the built environment, specifically with energy efficiency. The breakfast event, hosted by USGBC Colorado and the Denver Chapter of IFMA, is scheduled for March 30 at Xcel Energy in Denver.

  • Panelists: Sara Cesario, CBRE / Lisa Stanley, USGBC / Creighton Ward, Centennial Realty Advisors

Recently, the city of Denver passed a benchmarking ordinance that will require all buildings more than 50,000 square feet to report their ENERGY STAR score by June 1. All buildings over 25,000 square feet will be required to report that number in 2018.

Speakers will discuss available tools and resources to help facility managers and building owners when undergoing energy benchmarking. CBRE's representative, Hilary Barnett, will share how the new city ordinance has affected their business and what steps they're taking to benchmark all their buildings in Denver.

Panel moderator Bob Macauley of Xcel Energy also sat on the Energize Denver Task Force, a group that sends recommendations to the city council about energy benchmarking and disclosure.
