standardized metric
Standardized Metric

Until recently, a standardized,

comparable metric of whole building

energy performance did not exist

EPA introduced the

Energy Performance Rating System

in 1999 to meet this need


is your building performing well
Is 18 MPG high or low for an automobile?

Is 80 kBtu/SF/YR high or low for a building?

Is Your Building Performing Well?

energy performance rating is a comparative metric

Best investment opportunities are in lower quartiles - greatest potential for improvement

RCx & O&M improvements yield savings and label candidates

High scoring buildings provide lessons learned and label candidates

Reward & Learn

Invest & Tune








Energy Performance Rating

Energy Performance Rating is a Comparative Metric
top benefits of energy benchmarking
Top Benefits of Energy Benchmarking
  • Establish a baseline energy performance rating for each property
  • Set goals
  • Measure and verify improvements – financial and environmental
  • Prioritize investments
  • Identify lessons learned and apply across portfolio
  • Earn the ENERGY STAR
  • Earn recognition from BOMA and others for environmental and operational excellence

energy star challenge
National call to action for building owners and operators

Set at least 10% reduction goal

Benchmark and take action to improve

Meeting this goal would

Save $20 billion a year

Reduce GHG emissions the same amount as taking 30 millionvehicles off the road

Commercial Real Estate properties that earn the ENERGY STAR label:

  • Save $.50 sq/ft (on average)
  • Consume 35% less energy


  • Savings persist over time
  • Occupancy/tenant retention is higher
  • Savings leveraged into higher asset value upon disposition

Kats & Perlman, 2006

energy star leaders
  • Superior energy management is a leading indicator of overall organizational management
