Government Advocacy News
West Virginia Governor, Jim Justice, issues Proclamation to announce June 11-15, 2018 as
HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING WEEK
WV ASHRAE GGAC members, David Cotton and Art Hallstrom, have been working with the WV Office of Energy for GGAC outreach. They provided the proclamation narrative to the West Virginia Governor’s office who published and printed the proclamation document for public display.
Each year, members of the High Performance Building Coalition sponsor High Performance Building Week, which is scheduled this year for June 11–15. The Coalition, founded by ASHRAE, is comprised of approximately 200 organizations that advocate for energy efficiency and indoor air quality in Congress and in the many state legislatures.
High Performance Building Week is a time to heighten awareness and inform policymakers of the impact high performance buildings have on communities, as well as engage in dialogues that result in the development and passage of innovative policies and legislation that address resiliency, workforce development, energy and water efficiency needs. During this week, those organizations, industries and people who work to achieve high performance buildings are also recognized.
Energy Star Building Rating System Update!
Do you benchmark one or more buildings in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager? ENERGY STAR metrics are being updated to reflect the most recent market data available. And since the U.S. building stock is becoming more energy efficient, that means buildings will likely see, on average, a drop in their ENERGY STAR scores.
Visit www.energystar.gov/scoreupdates to learn more, register for a webinar, and get tips to prepare.
The update is scheduled to be in effect Sunday August 26, 2018. The deadline to submit applications using the current metrics is July 26. Buildings certified before the update will not lose their certification. However you may want to document current Energy Star pre-update scores with Portfolio Manager in reporting tab for other third party certification and incentives.
