The resilience team at the City of Pittsburgh is an incredible force. Led by Grant Ervin, the team is dedicated to working in the community and across departments to truly make Pittsburgh aResilient City. In addition to a number of incredible projects, the team recently helped the city pass energy benchmarking legislature. The legislation requires owners of nonresidential buildings over 50,000 square feet (or portions of mixed use buildings with at least 50,000 square feet of nonresidential space) to submit building energy and water usage to the city on an annual basis. This legislature makes Pittsburgh the 17th city to adopt benchmarking legislation and showcases Pittsburgh’s commitment to energy and water consumption monitoring and reduction. This is just one way the city is setting a standard for private industries to be aware of their intake and impact on the city’s overall usage of energy and water.
