New York City, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2013 -- Energy Management Systems consultancy has become an essential component of energy efficiency thanks to the New York City Local Law 87 effective from this Year 2013, under the purview of which buildings spanning 50.000 square feet or more are required to conduct energy audits and retro commissioning by a non-staffed, independent and certified expert.
But what is an energy audit and why it is required? A reliable source explains, “An energy audit is a formal technical assessment of a building’s base systems, which involves improvement and modifications to mechanical systems, optimizing energy performance through energy efficiency technologies, quantifying energy costs and savings as well as, reporting the findings of the assessment to the Department of Buildings in an energy efficiency report.”
Energy audits are required to understand the energy consumption logistics of a building. New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the City Council mandated energy audits with the goal of tackling energy efficiency issues in buildings with large occupancy levels.
Owners and managers of buildings covering more than 50,000 square feet are then required to conduct energy audits and retro commissioning with relatively short periods of 1 to 4 years. The first set of energy audits required under Local Law 87 is due by end of the year in 2013.
The law puts forth certain requirements for auditors who can do energy audits for clients.
