Meet Local and Federal Building Performance Standards with District Energy
The Biden Administration announced the first-ever Federal Building Performance Standard (BPS), which aims to cut energy use and recognizes district energy as a solution for Federally-owned buildings to meet their targets by 2030.
Many states and cities around the U.S. are enacting similar building performance standards for existing and new buildings, such as BERDO 2.0 in Boston, BEUDO in Cambridge, and BEPS in Baltimore. Electrifying our district energy systems to offer eSteam™ will help you meet these new building standards.
