Understand How to use and pay for Energy and Know Answers to all the Questions Related to Your Benchmarking Effort

Every energy efficiency and sustainability effort starts with benchmarking which is creating a meaningful performance baseline. Many municipalities have passed encouraging laws and some have mandated benchmarking, the buzz word of today. It is often that Energy Star Portfolio Manager is picked as a tool for benchmarking. Questions arise in this context, such as:

  • How do you make sense of all this?
  • Are you just trying to comply with a law, or is there some other benefit in benchmarking?
  • What are the costs of doing benchmarking and costs of not doing benchmarking before you jump into your energy efficiency strategy?
