This six-page report summarizes the results of EPA's review of the 1-100 ENERGY STAR score model for retail properties.

In 2018, EPA updated the ENERGY STAR score models and related performance metrics for U.S. buildings in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager® based on the most recent market data available. After the update, EPA implemented a review period, during which we solicited feedback on the application of the models to various commercial building sectors and the resulting scores. The review period included three phases: gathering feedback; analyzing the models and evaluating score changes on buildings benchmarking in Portfolio Manager; and communicating the results. This document communicates the results and concludes our review period for the retail ENERGY STAR model.
