The Office of Building Performance (OBP) oversees Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) and their implementation, compliance, and enforcement.
The Building Energy Performance Standards is a City of St. Louis program to reduce carbon emissions, decrease building operating costs, and revitalize building stock. The program requires an annual benchmark reporting of energy and water use and establishes minimum levels of energy efficiency for municipal- and privately-owned commercial and residential buildings 50,000 square feet and larger.
If you are an owner or manager of a building over 50,000 square feet in the City of St. Louis, you may be required to participate in the Benchmarking Program and report your building's energy usage data to the city each year. You will need to know:
- how to determine if your building must participate
- how to comply with building energy performance standards
- how to gather your utility data for reporting
- Book a Consultation Book a Consultation with an Energy Analyst with the Office of Building Performance
- Find Your Building ID Steps to find your building ID which is needed for energy usage reporting to the Office of Building Performance
- Submit a Benchmarking Report Building owners who are not already tracking whole-building data in Energy Star will undertake a multi-step process to comply with standards.
