Local Law 87 Background:
Local Law 87 (LL87) mandates that buildings over 50,000 gross square feet undergo periodic energy audit and retro-commissioning measures, as part of the Greener, Greater Buildings Plan (GGBP). The intent of this law is to inform building owners of their energy consumption through energy audits, which are surveys and analyses of energy use, and retro-commissioning, the process of ensuring correct equipment installation and performance.
In addition to benchmarking annual energy and water consumption, energy audits and retro-commissioning will give building owners a much more robust understanding of their buildings’ performance, eventually shifting the market towards increasingly efficient, high-performing buildings.
There are 3 steps to comply with NYC Local Law 87:
- Energy Audit: A licensed engineering firm must conduct an ASHRAE Level II Energy Audit. An Energy Audit is a detailed survey and analysis of a building to identify all opportunities to reduce energy and water use. The end result is a report that details all potential energy and cost-saving measures. ASHRAE Energy Audits also include a detailed financial analysis for each recommendation.
- Retro-Commissioning (RCx): Based on the findings of the Energy Audit, Vert Energy Group will conduct retro-commissioning study to identify deficiencies in your building’s base systems. RCx ensures that building systems are operating in accordance with facility requirements and design intent. The recommendations made in a RCx study are often low and no-cost energy saving and building modernization measures that pay back quickly.
- Submit Energy Efficiency Report (EER): Following completion of the Energy Audit & Retro-Commissioning studies, Vert Energy Group will submit the EER to the NYC Department of Buildings on your behalf. Vert Energy Group will also follow up with the City regularly to ensure your property is in compliance with LL87.
