Retrieving your building's energy usage data just got easier. With our new, efficient and secure Benchmarking Tool, we've streamlined the process for building owners and property managers to retrieve energy consumption data for upload into the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. From start to finish, the tool helps you aggregate your building's usage data into a single virtual meter that can be used in Portfolio Manager to generate your benchmark score.
If you’re an existing ENERGY STAR Facilities user, you'll need to create a new account, because your data will not be transferred to the Benchmarking Tool. However, any existing data in the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager will not be affected.
For buildings with five or more tenants, energy usage data will be aggregated automatically. However, for buildings with fewer than five tenants, you'll need to get authorization from each of your tenants, have them sign our consent form and keep the forms for your records.
Already using our Benchmarking Tool? Anytime there are changes in tenant occupancy or account information, you'll need to update your building profile to generate the most accurate benchmarking score, and you’ll need to obtain an updated tenant consent form.
