Building Performance Colorado (BPC) is Colorado’s statewide benchmarking program created as a result of House Bill 21-1286, or the “Energy Performance for Buildings” Statute and aims to increase energy efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the building sector. The program requires owners of large commercial, multifamily, and public buildings 50,000 square feet and larger to report their annual energy use to the Colorado Energy Office (CEO). The first benchmarking reporting deadline for building owners is December 1, 2022 for calendar year 2021 energy use data.
Building owners are required to submit their energy data through ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, a free energy management tool used to track and assess energy and water consumption. By measuring and tracking energy use in buildings, also known as benchmarking, building owners and tenants can better understand how their building’s energy performance compares to similar buildings and identify opportunities to cut energy waste.
Please visit the Building Performance Colorado (BPC) website to learn more about the State's benchmarking program and how to submit your benchmarking report, or to check out many of the free training and resources the program provides. In order to find out if a building you own is covered by the Statute, please use this Building ID Search Tool.
