New Label from ILFI to “Reveal” Building Energy Data

Buildings will be able to display a standard label showing energy use under a new program from the International Living Future Institute.

Finding a building’s energy use can be surprisingly hard. Putting it in context with data from other buildings is even harder, as we detailed in Measuring Energy Use in Buildings.

The organization that created the Living Building Challenge as well as the Declare and Just labels is jumping into the fray. The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) will begin issuing the new energy label, called “Reveal,” in late 2015, says Eric Corey Freed, vice president for global outreach at ILFI.
