Andrew C. Burr, LEED AP, is Director of Building Energy Performance Policy at the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) in Washington, DC. IMT advises state and local governments on the design and implementation of building performance policies. Andrew researches best practices as well as the economic benefits and job creation impacts of these policies.

Seven cities and two states have adopted energy rating and disclosure laws. While all of them require building owners to track their properties' energy use, the laws vary regarding the size and type of buildings they affect; whether the energy use data must be disclosed publicly, or just to potential tenants or buyers; and other factors. We will discuss with Andrew Burr the ongoing progress of these and other policies geared to making buildings more energy efficient and therefore more valuable.
