Using PACE to Meet and Exceed Energy Standards
In this presentation, the speaker discusses the role of PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) in meeting local government building codes and energy efficiency standards in St. Louis. The city aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from buildings and has implemented benchmarking and energy performance standards. Building owners are required to meet specific energy efficiency targets, and the presentation outlines various pathways to compliance, including standard performance, early adoption, narrowing the compliance gap, and custom plans for unique circumstances. Failure to comply may result in fines and permit issues. Building owners are encouraged to connect with the City of St. Louis Office of Building Performance for guidance and support.
