First page of How to Benchmark a Campus
Use this six-page guide to walk through the steps of benchmarking multi-building properties, commonly referred to as campuses, in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®.  Also, refer to a list of frequently asked questions about campus and building-level associations, the ENERGY STAR score, metering, reporting, and sharing.
This image shows the first page of the How to Respond to Data Requests in Portfolio Manager document.

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.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Worship Facilities applies to churches, temples, mosques, synagogues, meetinghouses, or any other buildings that primarily function as a place of religious worship. 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.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Wastewater Treatment Plants applies to primary, secondary, and advanced treatment facilities with or without nutrient removal capacity. 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.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Warehouses applies to non-refrigerated warehouses, distribution centers, or refrigerated warehouses. 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 energyuse and then normalize for those factors, a statistical analysis of the peer building population is performed.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR score provides 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. Stand-alone swimming pools are not eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR score. However, because swimming pools are a common energy-intensive amenity at other commercial building types (i.e., hotels and schools), the ENERGY STAR score does make adjustments to accommodate for the presence of swimming pools.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Supermarkets/Grocery Stores applies to properties used for the retail sale of primarily food and beverage products. 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.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Senior Care Communities applies to buildings that house and provide care and assistance for elderly residents. 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.
