Energy Start Portfolio Manager Benchmarking


Benchmarking

Benchmarking, using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, is an energy modelling program created by the US EPA for commercial and institutional buildings used to track energy and water consumption. This program calculates carbon footprint/emissions, and provides a "score" of the building by usage.

 

Benefits of Benchmarking

  • Sets a baseline
  • Helps prioritize upgrades for multiple buildings
  • Scores of 75 or greater can be listed as ENERGY STAR certified 
  • These ENERGY STAR certified buildings may justify higher rent
