Asset Score Audit Reporting Tool Webinar

The City of Atlanta’s Commercial Buildings Energy Efficiency Ordinance requires commercial buildings above 25,000 square feet to obtain an ASHRAE Level II or equivalent energy audit every 10 years. In order to comply, the City will require summary audit reports to be submitted for review through the Department of Energy’s Asset Score Audit Reporting Tool. This web-based platform allows service providers to easily input their audit data and track their submission. Join the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Resilience and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on Wednesday, August 8th at 11AM EDT for an informative webinar on the Asset Score Audit Reporting Tool. This webinar is tailored for energy service providers, but building owners/managers are welcome to join.
