California Benchmarking Collaborative Comments on the Initial Staff Proposal to Implement Building Energy Use Data Access and Public Disclosure Provisions of AB 802

The Collaborative strongly supports AB 802 and the Energy Commission’s development of implementing rules for a statewide, time‐certain benchmarking and transparency program. These comments build on the recommendations provided in public comments filed by the Collaborative on December 22, 2015. In these comments, we: 1. Recommend the implementing regulations reflect the intent of AB 802 to provide broader access to energy usage information to support energy efficiency market transformation; 2. Strongly recommend the Energy Commission include buildings with 1‐2 meters in the statewide benchmarking and transparency program; 3. Urge the Commission to not limit the number of accounts by fuel type; 4. Propose definitions for and inclusion of mixed‐use buildings; 5. Recommend adoption of meter mapping best practices; and 6. Support the creation of stakeholder outreach and training resources, including a Benchmarking Help Center
