The ENERGY STAR Score for Multifamily Housing in the United States
The ENERGY STAR Score for Multifamily Housing applies to buildings that contain 20 or more residential living units. The objective of the ENERGY STAR score is to provide a fair assessment of the energy performance of a property relative to its peers, taking into account the climate, weather, and business activities at the property. To identify the aspects of building activity that are significant drivers of energy use and then normalize for those factors, a statistical analysis of the peer building population is performed.

This document describes how to respond to a data request in Portfolio Manager. You may receive data requests from other Portfolio Manager users or organizations to provide property or portfolio data as part of a program or initiative. This process is often used in jurisdictions where there are voluntary benchmarking programs or mandatory energy use disclosure policies, and for energy efficiency competitions.  This document explains how to respond to these requests.

EPA provides ENERGY STAR 1 – 100 scores for more than 10 types of commercial buildings. These scores are based on robust data samples and are updated as new data becomes available. This two-page document lists  the data source for each ENERGY STAR 1 – 100 score, as well as the year in which it was last updated.

Portfolio Manager now contains more than 80 property types to choose from when setting up your property. Although the property types eligible to receive the 1-100 ENERGY STAR score have not changed, the expanded list of property types offers you greater ability to define and categorize properties. This is the full list of available property types in Portfolio Manager. This list does not include definitions or use details.
