Benchmarking Challenge

In partnership with the Kansas City Mayor’s Energy Challenge, Building Efficiency Solutions is encouraging affordable multifamily buildings to voluntarily benchmarking their buildings. Benchmarking is the first step in the one-stop shop energy upgrade process, but also a valuable tool for buildings of all ages and levels of efficiency. Through the Challenge, we are providing technical assistance with multiple benchmark tools, free WegoWise subscriptions (limited enrollments available), interpretation support, and public recognition opportunities.
