The Standard Target Pathway is one of the three Principal Compliance Pathways. It requires that a building meet or exceed the Standard for its Property Type during course of a Compliance Cycle and demonstrate it during the Evaluation Year.
This Pathway is only available for select buildings in a “high-performing property type group.” A high-performing property type includes those property types where the Standards are at least as energy efficient as the national median. The national median is an ENERGY STAR Score of 50, or for property types that cannot receive a Score, the national median Source EUI.
It gives building owners the flexibility to determine for themselves how to meet the energy performance requirements. Building owners following this Pathway can implement energy efficiency measures of their choosing to reduce energy consumption in the building.
