This six-page report summarizes the results of EPA's review of the 1-100 ENERGY STAR score model for supermarket properties.
The ENERGY STAR score for retail stores applies to both retail stores and wholesale club/supercenters. The objective of the ENERGY STAR score is meant to fairly assess how a property’s energy use measures up against similar properties considering the climate and business activities. A statistical analysis of the peer population is performed to identify the aspects of property activity that are significant drivers of energy use and to normalize for those same factors. The result of this analysis is an equation that predicts the energy use of a property, based on its business activities.
