Commercial Green Utility Data Standards

MISMO is seeking public comment on a proposed data standard for commercial green utility data. The 90 day comment period ends on September 30th, 2021. 

The new dataset will facilitate the efficient exchange of multifamily green utility data across the commercial real estate finance industry. It was developed by commercial real estate and technology professionals in response to increased reporting requirements brought about by the growing use of energy and water efficient features on commercial and multifamily properties. The reports are leveraged to obtain industry certifications and to complete energy and water audits which may enable lenders to provide mortgage loan discounts.  

The Commercial MISMO workgroup brought stakeholders together to create a better experience for conducting and exchanging whole-property utility data.  This release includes the stand-alone Commercial Utility Green Dataset specification along with several additional resources to facilitate ease of use and adoption, including an implementation guide; logical reference structure; logical data dictionary (LDD); documented use cases in Excel; as well as sample XML files for each use case. Note that legacy MISMO commercial specifications will be updated to include new and modified data points, enumerations and structures associated with the new Commercial Appraisal Dataset at a future date.

The public comment period is intended to afford workgroup participants who participated on the proposal notice prior to final release, in order to review the exchange and disclose any applicable Patent Rights (as defined by MISMO's 2018 Intellectual Property Rights Policy).

MISMO requests that any non-participant organization that may have any patent or patent applications, or other intellectual property rights that might be infringed upon by an organization that uses or is compliant with these proposed MISMO products, to disclose them at this time in writing. All comments and disclosures should be directed to
