On February 6, 2017, Ontario introduced mandatory energy and water reporting and benchmarking (EWRB) for large buildings.

Ontario Regulation 20/17, Reporting of Energy Consumption and Water Use, enables EWRB.

Building owners of commercial, industrial, multi-unit residential and other building types that are 50,000 square feet or larger are required to report their building’s energy and water consumption, and greenhouse gas emission data annually to the Ministry of Energy.

Next Steps:

Reporting will be phased in as outlined in the schedule below.

The Ministry has created EWRB communications materials for distributors.
