Until benchmarking its buildings with Portfolio Manager, US EPA's energy performance rating system, USAA Real Estate Company management believed its portfolio to be highly energy efficient. However, initial results indicated that USAA Real Estate Company had much room for improvement.
Recognizing the importance of rating the energy performance of their facilities, USAA Real Estate has invested in providing the most complete benchmarking results possible. USAA utilized the services of ABM Engineering, the company's national operating engineering services provider, to maintain the most current data within the EPA's Portfolio Manager. USAA Real Estate has also used ENERGY STAR training tools to create an in-house training program for all management, asset management and engineering team members to explain each step of the benchmarking process. Since 2004 the building energy performance rating has become one of USAA Real Estate's key performance metrics for its corporate real estate portfolio. A commitment to benchmarking led USAA Real Estate Company to benchmark one hundred percent of its eligible space and resulted in a 62.5 percent increase in average energy performance rating by the end of 2004.
