Background: On January 27, 2017, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen unanimously passed an energy benchmarking ordinance that requires municipal, institutional, commercial, and multifamily residential buildings who’s square footage is equal to or greater than 50,000 to track and report their energy and water usage annually to the City’s Building Division.

In the City of St. Louis, buildings (residential, commercial, and industrial) are responsible for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions. Policies like the City’s benchmarking requirements and the new Building Energy Performance Standard (BEPS) make St. Louis’ existing buildings heroes in the fight against wasted energy, air pollution and climate change.
