ENERGY STAR

INCREASE YOUR BUILDINGS VALUE WITH ENERGY STAR

Data shows that ENERGY STAR buildings carry a sales price premium of about 2% over their non-rated counterparts. We help clients qualify for ENERGY STAR certification which demonstrates your company’s success in taking steps to improve the efficiency of your building and your bottom line.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ENERGY STAR BENCHMARKING?

Portfolio Manager allows Energy Managers and Chief Engineers to track month-to-month and year-to-year energy performance. Beyond benchmarking for ENERGY STAR certification, these online accounts can be used for:

  • Comparing energy performance with “peer” buildings.
  • Quick way to achieve LEED points for buildings seeking LEED accreditation.
  • Forecasting energy use in anticipation of added occupancy, computers, and other variables.
  • Discovering high level maintenance issues that lead to wasted energy.
  • Compliance with California AB 1103.

HOW DO I EARN THE ENERGY STAR?

Before you are eligible to receive a plaque, an inspection of the facility is required by the EPA. This inspection must be conducted by a third party, under the supervision of a professional engineer. During the inspection the engineer confirms that mandatory ventilation standards are met, and that the online Portfolio Manager application matches the building’s actual conditions. Once the inspection is complete and the mandatory program requirements are met, the engineer submits a Statement of Energy Performance form to the EPA, and soon after, you receive your plaque.
