The ENERGY STAR score for indoor ice rinks in Canada applies to public or private buildings that include one or more ice sheets used for recreational or professional skating, hockey or ringette. 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.

This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for metal casting plants. It also explains how the EPIs were developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy efficiency by working with the metal casting industry. This report is useful if you would like background information on how EPA's ENERGY STAR metal casting plant EPIs were developed. The report presents the individual equations used to develop the EPIs.
