Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Chapter 2 of title 4 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 4-216 to read as follows:

“Compliant building” means a building in which all covered spaces comply with the occupancy sensor requirements of section C405.2 of the New York city energy conservation code for new construction.

“Covered building” means a city-owned building that is under the jurisdiction of and is operated by the department of citywide administrative services. For the purposes of this section, a covered building shall not include either a high-occupancy building or a critical facility for which such occupancy sensor requirements shall not apply.

“Covered space” means space that is located within a city-owned building that is under the jurisdiction of and is operated by the department citywide administrative services and which is required to comply with the occupancy sensor requirements of section C405.2 of the New York city energy conservation code.

b. Existing covered spaces shall comply with the occupancy sensor installation requirements of section C405.2 of the New York city energy conservation code for new construction as follows:

1. by January 1, 2023, at least 25 percent of covered buildings shall be compliant buildings;

2. by January 1, 2025, at least 50 percent of covered buildings shall be compliant buildings;

3. by January 1, 2027, at least 75 percent of all covered buildings shall be compliant buildings.

4. by January 1, 2030, all remaining covered buildings shall be compliant buildings.

c. By January 1, 2024 and every third year thereafter until 2030, the department of citywide administrative services shall, with the cooperation of all relevant agencies, report to the mayor and the speaker of the council the following information:

1. the number of covered buildings as of the end of the previous three calendar years;

2. the number of compliant buildings and the percentage of covered buildings that are compliant buildings, as of the end of the previous three calendar years; and

3. the number of covered buildings that became compliant buildings during the previous three calendar years.
