WHAT IS BENCHMARKING? It's measuring how much energy a building consumes and comparing this to other buildings.
WHY BENCHMARK? According, to ENERGY STAR data, buildings who benchmark for three years saw an average energy savings of 7%. You can't manage what you don't measure!
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? Take this our Voluntary Energy Benchmarking Pledge and we'll email you a badge you can use to promote your participation. You'll have until the end of of the current year to benchmark your building in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager using the previous year's energy data as a baseline. Then report back to us through our reporting form in ENERGY STAR, which we will also share by e-mail.
