Watchwire by Tango Banner Ad

As cities and states increasingly implement energy benchmarking, disclosure, and transparency mandates, utilities and businesses find themselves navigating a complex landscape of compliance and opportunity. The rise of building performance standards, such as New York’s Local Law 97, Boston’s Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO), and Denver’s Energize Denver, underscores the urgency for detailed energy reporting. This trend highlights a pivotal moment for organizations to reassess their energy strategies, not just for regulatory compliance but for significant cost savings and sustainability improvements.

What drives the need for comprehensive energy reporting, and how can businesses leverage these insights for competitive advantage?

Andy Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer at Tango, provides a quick analysis of the importance of energy reporting through benchmarking and transparency. Anderson’s insights reveal the multifaceted benefits and strategies that utilities and businesses can adopt to enhance energy efficiency and sustainability.
