2019 Building Energy Benchmarking

2019 Building Energy Benchmarking

Seattle’s Building Energy Benchmarking Program (SMC 22.920) requires owners of non-residential and multifamily buildings (20,000 square feet or larger) to track energy performance and annually report to the City of Seattle. Annual benchmarking, reporting and disclosing of building performance are foundational elements of creating more market value for energy efficiency.

Per Ordinance (125000), starting with 2015 energy use performance reporting, the City of Seattle is making the data for all building 20,000 SF and larger available annually. This dataset contains all 2019 buildings required to report.

If you have questions or comments on the data, email us at energybenchmarking@seattle.gov and include Open Data in the subject line.
