This guide introduces the features of the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager Data Explorer, which enables users to explore aggregated, anonymized data from EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. It includes examples (at the end of the guide), demonstrating how to combine specific filters to get the most out of the data.
The Portfolio Manager Data Explorer offers a variety of metrics, and users can quickly see how the energy use of buildings varies based on the type of building, where it is located, its size, and other filters. Users can also download results for further analysis.
The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager Data Explorer houses energy data for over 150,000 U.S. commercial, multifamily, and single-family properties. The Data Explorer allows users to query this data and explore energy metrics such as Energy Use Intensity (EUI), ENERGY STAR Score, and Percent Electricity across a wide range of property types and characteristics. A variety of filters and metric display options provide customizable results. The tool is available at https://portfoliomanager.energystar.gov/dataExplorer.
Whether you are thinking about upgrades for equipment that obviously needs replacing or don’t know what equipment may need replacing, you may wonder, “where should I start?” and “do I replace one piece of equipment or system at a time or should I do a comprehensive upgrade of my entire facility?” The answers to these questions will vary depending on your facility—these may include the age of your current equipment and facility systems, your local utility rates, your hours of operation, your level of contentedness with your current equipment and systems, and your

This document presents details on the development of the 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR Score for vehicle dealerships, which applies to buildings used for the sale of new or used light-, medium- and heavy-duty cars and trucks. The objective of the ENERGY STAR score is to provide a fair assessment of the energy performance of a property relative to its peers, considering the climate, weather, and business activities at the property.
If you benchmark your water use in Portfolio Manager, one of the key metrics you’ll see is water use intensity, or WUI. Essentially, the WUI expresses a building’s water use as a function of its size or other characteristics.
For most property types in Portfolio Manager, the WUI is expressed as gallons per square foot per year. It’s calculated by dividing the total water consumed by the building in one year by the total gross floor area of the building.
