Seattle has adopted one of the country’s most innovative add-on features to energy benchmarking and disclosure – a periodic building tune up policy (click here for more background on the policy). Over the summer, Seattle OSE has hosted a series of both technical working group and public forums to discuss potential features of the required tune up. While the first tranche of buildings covered by the policy (>200,000 sf) doesn’t begin until 2018, the tune up requirements will be well known much sooner so that building owners can prepare for the work. Additionally, the City of Seattle has received a US DOE grant to "accelerate" tune-up work in the city allowing them to get some experience prior to the mandate on tune-up program features and implementation.
