EnerNOC's Utility Solutions' Program Implementation team has partnered with hundreds of utilities and grid operators worldwide to bring utility-funded programs to commercial, institutional, and industrial energy users.

Cities across the U.S. are enacting policies that require large commercial and mixed-use buildings to benchmark and disclose energy ratings and perform audits and retro-commissioning. While many high-performing buildings already have an energy efficiency plan, the policies are designed to shift the market towards more efficient buildings, while saving money and energy in the process.
Below is a sample of the local policy and legal resources available for navigating the guidelines for your buildings.
