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. In the United States, data centers are able to earn the ENERGY STAR score using an energy intensity metric that takes into consideration the IT Energy used by the data center (see the Technical Reference for the ENERGY STAR Score for Data Centers for more details). For data centers within a larger property, it can sometimes be difficult for property managers to obtain IT Energy.

This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs) for automobile powertrain (engine & transmission) plants. It reviews how the EPIs were developed to provide plant-level indicators of energy performance by working with the motor vehicle  industry. The report also presents the individual equations used in the EPI.

The objective of the water score is to provide a fair assessment of the water use performance of a property relative to its peers, taking operational characteristics of the property and impact of climate into account. A statistical analysis is performed to identify building parameters that are significant drivers of water use using multivariate regression analysis, resulting in an equation that predicts the Water Use Intensity (WUI) of a property.

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.

This 6-page document outlines proposed criteria for a new tenant-based EPA recognition for energy efficiency, and poses specific questions to solicit input from tenants, landlords, and other stakeholders in all commercial building sectors. EPA accepted comments until November 14, 2016. The comment period is now closed. Check the About "Tenant Star" page for updates.

This checklist must be completed by the Professional Engineer conducting the verification for ENERGY STAR industrial plant certification.  The completed checklist must be scanned as PDF and included with the application materials sent to EPA.  The original checklist must be kept in the plant's certification file. This checklist can also be found in Appendix 3 of the Professional Engineers’ Guide for Validating Statements of Energy Performance.
