Kansas City Passes Energy Benchmarking and Transparency Bill

The City Council of Kansas City, Missouri, passed a building energy benchmarking and transparency ordinance on June 4 that would require large municipal, multifamily, and commercial buildings to measure and disclose their energy use. Such policies make it possible to compare the energy performance of different buildings—similar to the miles-per-gallon ratings of different cars—allowing prospective buyers and renters to understand the full cost of operating the buildings in which they work, live, learn, and play.
