NEW - AEE Certifications Recognized in New York City and by City of San Francisco

Local Law 87 for New York City requires all buildings over 50,000 square feet to perform retro-commissioning of systems, and to submit an energy efficiency report based on a building audit performed by a qualified energy auditor. Under Local Law 87, AEE's Certified Energy Manager and Certified Energy Auditor certifications are approved energy auditor certifications, and the Certified Building Commissioning Firm, Certified Building Commissioning Professional, and Existing Building Commissioning Professional certifications are approved retro-commissioning certifications.

The City of San Francisco's Department of the Environment now recognizes a Certified Energy Manager, Existing Building Commissioning Professional, and Certified Building Commissioning Professional with at least two years' experience as qualified to provide energy auditing services.
