The intent of this law is to require buildings to undertake the audits that lead to energy efficiency retrofits, which generally result in major cost and energy savings. Local Law 87 (LL87) mandates that buildings 50,000 gross square feet or larger undergo periodic energy audit and retro-commissioning measures, as part of the Greener, Greater Buildings Plan (GGBP).
In addition to benchmarking annual energy and water consumption, undertaking an energy audit and retro-commissioning will give building owners a much more robust understanding of their buildings’ performance, eventually shifting the market towards increasingly efficient, high-performing buildings
NYC Local Law 87 (LL87) – Audits & Retrocommissioning
Starting in 2013, all buildings in New York City over 50,000 square feet will be required to comply with Local Law 87 (LL87), the City’s energy auditing and retro-commissioning requirements.
The compliance to the Local Law 87 involves following stages: The energy audit:
Our team of qualified technicians which includes a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) will undertake the building site inspection. As part of the inspection our technicians performs the evaluation of all the building’s energy-related systems: heat and hot water, lighting and other electrical loads. Based on their findings and information provided, an audit report evaluating the performance of the building’s systems, and recommending improvements is developed. The report provides the detail information and evaluation of building’s total energy scenario and performance. GSS has the expertise and have certified energy managers and technicians to perform your Local Law 87 energy audit. Retro-commissioning:
In order to comply with the Law a qualified retro-commissioning agent identifies work that must be completed. Once the identified work is completed another inspection of the building systems is undertaken to confirm the compliance with the City’s requirements. On successful inspection and determination of completion of work on the identified areas, the retro-commissioning agent prepares a report verifying that the property is in compliance. GSS has the expertise and have certified energy managers and technicians to perform the retro-commissioning inspection. The Energy Efficiency Report:
The energy audit report and the retro-commissioning report are submitted to the Department of Buildings to confirm your compliance.
