Use ENERGY STAR benchmarking tools
You can use ENERGY STAR tools to benchmark energy performance, regardless of facility type. Many of these tools are the industry standard and have been adopted for use by governments and leading private sector organizations.
Get started today!
Commercial buildings (includes institutional facilities)
For commercial buildings, there’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Use it to measure and track the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of your entire portfolio of buildings and share results. You can also use it to track water consumption. Certain buildings will also receive a 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score.
For manufacturing sites, there’s the ENERGY STAR Energy Tracking Tool, which you can use to track the energy use of any type of facility. Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs) are also available for certain types of manufacturing facilities. Benchmark using your industry’s EPI to receive a 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score.
Commercial building design
For new construction, there’s Target Finder. Enter the estimated energy use of your commercial building design, and this tool will tell you its projected 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score. You can also pick a goal — either an ENERGY STAR score or an energy reduction target — and it’ll tell you what annual energy use to aim for.
