CITY MANDATED ENERGY AUDITS

Many cities recognize the importance of energy efficiency and now require building owners to submit regular energy benchmarking, audits or retro-commissioning reports. We provide these services fir the following cities:

  • San Francisco

    We are a qualified provider of energy audits required by the City of San Francisco's Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Ordinance (0017-11). We can help turn this requirement into a benefit for your facility.

  • Berkeley

    As the leading, registered commercial building assessor for the City of Berkeley's Building Energy Savings Ordinance (BESO), we are experienced, responsive and ready to perform your audit.

  • New York LL87

    We are qualified to provide energy audits and retro-commissioning services to comply with New York City's LL87. Our goal is not to “check a box” but to work with you to increase occupant comfort while seeing savings at the meter and on the bill.

We wrote the book on energy audits

kW Founder and President Jim Kelsey was the lead author for the sole publication which defines energy audits and guides our industry – ASHRAE’s Procedures for Commercial Building Energy Audits. Jim’s currently developing the publication into a standard that will establish consistency in the content and quality of energy audits as well and streamline energy data sharing which will benefit building owners, utilities, and agencies.
