This picture shows the first page of the ENERGY STAR score for hospitals in Canada document.

The ENERGY STAR Score for Hospitals in Canada applies to general medical hospitals, including critical access hospitals and children’s hospitals. 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.

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.

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.

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 Residence Halls/Dormitories applies to buildings associated with educational institutions (residence halls/dormitories) or military facilities (barracks) which offer multiple accommodations for long-term 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.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Offices applies to office and financial office property types. 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. A statistical analysis of the peer building population is performed to identify the aspects of building activity that are significant drivers of energy use and then to normalize for those factors.

Resource Type: 

The ENERGY STAR Score for Medical Offices applies to facility space used to provide diagnosis and treatment for medical, dental, or psychiatric outpatient care. 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 K-12 Schools applies to buildings or campuses used as a school for kindergarten through 12th grade students. 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 Hotels applies to properties renting overnight accommodations on a room/suite and nightly basis. 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.
