  ENERGY BENCHMARKING  

 
Energy Benchmarking ServicesEnergy Benchmarking is the process of comparing a building’s energy use to similar buildings. It provides a baseline of understanding for building owners and operators as to the opportunity for increasing energy efficiency. EPA’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager is the most common tool used to benchmark commercial buildings’ energy and water use.

 
Many major cities now have mandatory benchmarking and disclosure requirements for commercial buildings meeting certain criteria. Complete information on Philadelphia’s benchmarking program can be found here.

 
Whether mandated or voluntary, benchmarking is healthy for your bottom line. The old adage that you can’t manage what you don’t measure holds true. Providing visibility to one’s building’s energy and water efficiency helps prioritize resources and capital.

 
When you know your building’s energy and water use, you’ve taken the first step toward operating an efficient building which will:

• Save money
• Save energy
• Strengthen reputation
• Reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions
• Be more comfortable for occupants
• Increase its resale value
