Sharing Transparency for a More Efficient Future

New York

Policy Description:

Executive Order 88 requires all agencies and departments over which the Governor has executive authority to reduce the average EUI in State-owned buildings by at least 20% from a 2010/2011 baseline by April 1, 2020. The Order requires that all affected buildings that have an area greater than 20,000 square feet benchmark their energy consumption annually. Buildings that receive low scores, as determined by guidelines determined by an implementation team, will be required to undergo ASHRAE Level 2 energy audits and implement cost-effective improvements identified in the audit.
