Just to clarify for the prescriptive pathway, the action plan submitted to DOEE will need to include energy efficiency measures that are designed to achieve 25% savings in Site EUI. This is done because the Prescriptive Pathway is not performance based, but must achieve comparable savings to the Performance Pathway, which requires at least 20% Site EUI actual savings. Actual savings are typically less than estimated savings, so the requirement for extra savings compensates for the difference. If a building owner does not want to target 25% savings and is confident that 20% savings can be achieved, the building can switch to the Performance Pathway.

On the standard target pathway, if I am a high performing building and am already above national median, am I not already in compliance with BEPS 1? Why should I still choose this pathway?

For the standard target pathway, you will need to achieve the BEPS for your property type, which in most cases, is the local median (not the national median). You were evaluated against the BEPS based on your calendar year 2019 benchmarking report. If your calendar year 2019 benchmarking data showed that your property was performing worse than the BEPS, then you will be required to choose a compliance pathway. If you choose the standard target pathway, then your evaluation year is 2026, which means that your calendar year 2026 report will need to show a performance that is better than the BEPS. For example: you are an office building who reported an ESTAR score of 67 in 2019. The BEPS is a 71 for office buildings. You are below the BEPS, so you choose the standard target pathway. Your calendar year 2026 reported ESTAR score will need to be a 71 or better to be in compliance with the BEPS requirements.

If you are IN COMPLIANCE... Do you need to do anything at all?

01:12:50
Will I have to necessarily do Retro-Cx for prescriptive path or just energy audit is enough?
Theresa Backhus (she/her) - Building Innovation Hub
01:13:48
Retro Cx will achieve points for the Prescriptive Pathway (points if you develop a plan, and then more points if you implement)
Theresa Backhus (she/her) - Building Innovation Hub
01:14:47
If you are IN compliance with Cycle 1 requirements, you do not need to do anything for April 1. HOEVER- I caution you to look at your score, how far away you are from the Standard, and think about long-term performance. Cycle 2 of BEPS starts in 2027, and your building will be re-evaluated then.
