This is a sample ENERGY STAR Progress and Goals Report, available through Portfolio Manager (on the Reports tab). Create your own Progress and Goals Report to review your building’s energy use (baseline and current) and compare your actual energy use against your target and the national median. This report may be needed when applying for a grant or responding to a competition.

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.
