Brownstein Client Alert, December 1, 2016

On Nov. 30, 2016, the Denver City Council SAFEHOUSE Committee advanced Bill 16-1231 to the full City Council to amend the Denver Revised Municipal Code to require energy benchmarking and publication of the benchmarking score for commercial, multifamily, institution and municipal buildings over 25,000 square feet, impacting a total of approximately 3,000 buildings.

This ordinance is based on recommendations from the Energy Denver Task Force (“Task Force”), a task force created by the City and County of Denver to help improve the energy efficiency of commercial and multifamily residential buildings in Denver by 10 percent by 2020 as part of the Energize Denver Initiative. To learn more about the Task Force process, recommendations and the history leading up to Bill 16-1231, read an earlier Brownstein client alert from June.
