In 2023, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 3409, establishing an Energy Performance Standard policy for commercial buildings, often referred to as a Building Performance Standard (BPS). ODOE is working with a Rulemaking Advisory Committee and conducting rulemaking and public stakeholder outreach through multiple phases during program rule development in 2024. If you would like, please weigh in on the following questions related to Chapters 7 (Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis and Target Requirements), 8 (Energy Audit with Decarbonization Assessment Requirements), and 9 (Implementation and Verification Requirements) of the draft rules, which are based on ASHRAE Standard 100-2024.
