Colorado Benchmarking Program
Building Performance Colorado (BPC)
Building Performance Colorado (BPC) is Colorado’s new statewide benchmarking program that was created as a result of the “Energy Performance for Buildings'' Statute (HB21-1286). This law requires owners of large commercial, multifamily, and public buildings of 50,000 square feet or more to report their whole-building energy use annually to the Colorado Energy Office. Building owners will need to submit their 2021 energy use data by December 1, 2022.
This program aims to increase energy efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the building sector, and save Coloradans money by reducing energy costs. By measuring and tracking energy use in buildings, building owners and tenants can better understand how their energy performance compares to similar buildings and identify opportunities to cut energy waste.
Building Performance Colorado, which is managed by the Colorado Energy Office and administered by Touchstone IQ, includes a fully staffed Help Center to assist building owners with program compliance. The State of Colorado is joining three Colorado cities with existing benchmarking programs, Boulder, Denver, and Fort Collins.
