  • Have experience with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager? Assist building representatives to benchmark their energy use!

October 27
Benchmarking Blitz

Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy your building consumes, and comparing your energy performance to similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward saving energy and money!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online, interactive energy management tool that allows you to measure and track your building’s energy and water consumption, identify investment priorities, and verify improvements over time.

Get hands-on assistance using the free, online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool at the October 27 Benchmarking Blitz! All buildings benefit from benchmarking: businesses, schools, congregations, non-profits and local governments are encouraged to attend.

In order for this event to be a success, each building representative should bring:
  • Laptop. 
  • The building street address, year built, and contact information.
  • 12 consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building.  You will need the number of units of each energy type used, not just the dollar amount of the utility fee. Attendees that register by October 20 can receive assistance collecting this data from Ameren Missouri and Laclede Gas.
  • The building gross floor area
  • Key operating characteristics for each major space type.

    __ Gross floor area (SF)

    __ Hours of operation per week

    __ # of personal computers

    __ Presence of cooking facilities - yes or no

    __ # of commercial refrigeration/freezer units
