grew out of an unlikely moment at a meeting
DEM held with the Office of the Chief Medical
Examiner (OCME) in September 2016. The
OCME has a few facilities, of which the largest
is the Hirsch Forensics Laborator y. This is
a 15-stor y, 330,000 square foot mixed-use
building in midtown Manhattan, heated by
Con Edison's large district steam system,
that includes laborator y space ser ving public
health and criminal justice needs. OCME had
enrolled the facility in DR in 2014 and had
real-time metering installed in 2015. A review
of RTM load profiles and utility bills showed
that the lab put this building at the high end

of the energy-use spectrum. DEM chose to
be provocative at a meeting that September,
saying, "This building is an energy hog. The site
EUI is 330." The chief engineer picked his head
up from reading emails on his work phone; he
told us later that was the moment the agency
decided to work on LM.
A detailed site visit took place that
November. Monthly energy bills and screen
shots of real-time data were studied with
both agency and facility operations staff, and
together we looked at the BMS system, chillers
and other major energy-using equipment. This
was followed by weeks of email exchanges
