Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy your building consumes, and comparing your energy performance to similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward saving energy and money!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online, interactive energy management tool that allows you to measure and track your building’s energy and water consumption, identify investment priorities, and verify improvements over time.
Get hands-on assistance using the free, online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool at the upcoming Benchmarking Jam! All buildings benefit from benchmarking: businesses, schools, congregations, non-profits and local governments are encouraged to attend.
VOLUNTEER: Volunteers at the Benchmarking Blitz will support building representatives to use ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Experience with the free, online tool is required. To participate, select “Benchmarking Volunteer” when registering. Participants can self-report their participation for 2 GBCI CE hours in the volunteer category.
