2019 Benchmarking Training Schedule

The USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter, the City of St. Louis, and partners announce multiple opportunities to learn about energy benchmarking and get hands-on assistance with the free, online tool ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.

What is Benchmarking?

Benchmarking is the process of tracking your building’s energy and/or water use and comparing your performance to similar buildings and to past performance. Benchmarking is the first step in determining how to conserve resources, reduce operating costs, and reduce environmental impacts.

ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is a free and secure online tool that tracks energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Any building can use ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to understand their energy, water, and waste performance – schools, governments, congregations, businesses and retail stores.

About the City of St. Louis’s Building Energy Awareness Ordinance

On January 27, 2017, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen unanimously passed an energy benchmarking ordinance that requires municipal, institutional, commercial and multifamily residential buildings whose square footage is equal to or greater than 50,000 to track and report their energy and water usage annually to the City’s Building Division.

Privately owned buildings are required to benchmark and submit data by May 1 of each year using the free, online tool ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Full details about the Building Energy Awareness Ordinance are available at www.stlbenchmarking.com.

About the Better Buildings Through Benchmarking Campaign

Missouri History Museum’s Benchmarking and Energy Conservation Efforts Honored With American Alliance of Museums Sustainability Excellence Award

The Missouri Historical Society’s energy benchmarking and energy conservation achievements were recently honored with an American Alliance of Museums Sustainability Excellence Award!

Participation in the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter’s voluntary energy benchmarking campaign, now Better Buildings Through Benchmarking, drove the Missouri Historical Society to pledge to reduce their energy use by 25% by 2020. Through energy benchmarking, an energy audit, and implementation of facility improvement measures, the Missouri Historical Society has conserved energy, realized operational cost savings, and extended the life of their operational equipment.

From the case study:

The Missouri Historical Society is a proud steward of sustainable practices in the St. Louis community. We strive to be educators at the forefront of sustainability, and we are constantly finding new ways to reduce our energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In 2009, MHS took its first steps toward increased sustainability through employee and community engagement. Three years later in 2012, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, Missouri Gateway Chapter, we took a pledge to reduce our energy usage by 25% by the year 2020. That pledge led MHS to take a closer look at our energy consumption and consider how we can better serve our community, our donors, and our world. We recognized that we needed to make fundamental changes to fulfill our promise, so we commissioned an energy audit of the Missouri History Museum. Its results compelled us to honor our commitment to minimize consumption of energy and materials and reduce our operational costs associated with energy usage.

Bethel Lutheran Church is First House of Worship to earn ENERGY STAR Certification in Missouri

Bethel Lutheran Church, located in University City, is the first worship facility to earn ENERGY STAR Certification in Missouri. ENERGY STAR Certification recognizes efficient energy use in buildings. With an ENERGY STAR score of 81, Bethel Lutheran Church outperforms 81 percent of worship facilities nationwide. Their energy achievements are due to many years of work by the church’s Green Team, which has spearheaded their environmental ministry of caring for creation.

In 2010, Bethel became a Green Congregation working with the national Lutherans Restoring Creation (LRC) program. Since 2013, Bethel has been working to increase their energy efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint, and save money through the LRC’s Energy Stewards initiative. As a participating congregation, they began to measure their energy use in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, a free online tool that allows buildings to benchmark their energy use. Their initial results left plenty of room for improvement; they found that their baseline ENERGY STAR score was 36, well below average.

Johanna Schweiss (USGBC-MGC), Cindy Gross (Bethel Lutheran Church Green Team), and Linda Daniel (USGBC-MGC) with Bethel Lutheran Church’s final ENERGY STAR Application.

Bethel Lutheran Church conducted an energy audit in September 2013, and since that time their Board of Property and Maintenance has been working faithfully to implement big and small building improvements. These improvements include low and no cost changes such as sealing gaps around doors, as well as projects that required more investment but paid off with energy savings, including installing LED porch lights, installation of new heat pumps, furnace, and AC units, replacing windows, and transitioning to a zoned heating approach to reduce dependence on an old boiler. Bethel Lutheran installed solar panels in 2014.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the energy used by buildings in the United States is responsible for almost 40% of our national greenhouse gas emissions. By reducing their energy use, Bethel Lutheran Church not only lowered their energy bills, they reduced the environmental impacts associated with energy use, thus lowering their impact on poor regional air quality and global climate change.

“We are so inspired by Bethel Lutheran’s ENERGY STAR Certification. They are living their commitment to care for all of God’s creation,” stated Tracey Howe-Koch, coordinator of Missouri Interfaith Power and Light, a religious response to climate change. “By increasing their sanctuary’s energy efficiency, they are helping to ensure future generations are able to enjoy all that has been given to us. At Missouri Interfaith Power & Light we believe that people of faith are morally obligated to be good stewards of the environment. Bethel Lutheran is faithfully carrying out this charge and is a wonderful example of the impact one congregation can have.”

USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Volunteers Linda Daniels and Martha Martinko perform the facility walk-through required for ENERGY STAR Certification. USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Volunteers Linda Daniel and Martha Martinko perform the facility walk-through required for ENERGY STAR Certification.

Volunteers with U.S. Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter verified Bethel Lutheran’s ENERGY STAR application. Led by licensed architect Linda Daniel, volunteers confirmed that Bethel Lutheran’s energy and building data was correct and that the building meets EPA’s Indoor Environmental Quality and Thermal Comfort standards. Linda stated “As a volunteer, it is exciting to work with building owners as their facility begins to perform better, their energy costs go down, and they reduce their carbon footprint. It was an honor to work with this congregation. Bethel Lutheran has diligently worked over several years to earn this certification, and it’s my understanding that they intend to continue working to reduce their energy use.”

About ENERGY STAR certification
ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) helping businesses and individuals save energy and fight climate change through superior energy efficiency. Through ENERGY STAR, the nation’s most energy efficient buildings can earn ENERGY STAR certification. Since 1999, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across America — such as schools, hospitals, skyscrapers, retails stores, and manufacturing plants — have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance. On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings use 35 percent less energy and cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar buildings.
