Nice review, Nils. Regarding that last "study", why not just come out and say it? That report was funded by an industry group with a very specific agenda (to discourage Boston from enacting energy-reporting mandates like those in NYC and other places). It seems clear to me that they had to stretch really far to find data that they could use to make their case--like that one old, marginally relevant Danish study you mentioned.

While I would agree that there is not yet good data that energy labeling works--it's simply too new for that--there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that it is changing the conversation around energy use in buildings, in a good way.

Thanks for exposing more of its many weaknesses.
