Indianapolis’ Energy Benchmarking & Transparency Program Webinar
In the summer of 2021, the City of Indianapolis established an energy benchmarking and transparency program for buildings within Marion County. Beginning in 2023, buildings exceeding 100,000 square feet may begin reporting usage data. Beginning in 2024, buildings exceeding 50,000 square feet may begin reporting usage data.
Attorney Russell Brown from Clark Quinn, LLP will be discussing the details of the ordinance and the reporting requirements. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for property owners to share how they are collecting data for the purposes of reporting and complying with this program. Note: enforcement and penalties under this program do not begin until 2026.
The webinar will be recorded for those unable to attend.
