ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® (ESPM) is a tool for tracking, analyzing, and reporting property energy use, water use, waste and materials, and energy-related GHG emissions as well as assessing performance over time and comparing against peer buildings, similar buildings within your own portfolio, and reduction goals. ENERGY STAR’s 1-100 scores and ENERGY STAR certification are available for several higher education building types and can help you demonstrate your sustainability achievements and industry leadership.
Building Energy Use Benchmarking and Public Disclosure Program
California’s Building Energy Benchmarking Program requires the owners of buildings to report energy use data every year to the California Energy Commission (CEC). This information is shared on the CEC website for building owners and operators to compare their building’s energy use to other similar buildings and take action to improve the energy efficiency of their building, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and lower their utility bills.
For guidance on how to submit your benchmarking report in compliance with AB802, follow these steps, or watch the following video:
