Before you start, it’ll help speed up the process if you first collect all the data you’ll need to enter into Portfolio Manager. Use the data collection worksheet to get a complete list of the information you’ll need. Then, when you’re ready to create your property in Portfolio Manager, you can create a PDF or Word document to print and fill out so all of the data is right in front of you.
The information you’ll need depends on a few things:
- What type of property you have (e.g., office or retail)
All property types require some basic information, like the gross floor area and energy usage information, to see basic metrics. In addition, some property types that are eligible for an ENERGY STAR score may also require other information.
- Where your property is located
Whether your building is located in the U.S., Canada, or another country, your property’s location may impact if it’s eligible for an ENERGY STAR score and what information is required to get a score.
Use the data collection worksheet to look up required data for your specific property type and its location!
