You’ve heard it before:  You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

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.

All building types can be entered into Portfolio Manager and receive energy and water benchmarks, as well as a comparison of performance against a national average for buildings of a similar type. All you need are your energy bills and some basic information about your building to get started.***

During this hands-on workshop, participants will utilize information they bring about their building to establish their building’s profile in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, benchmark their energy and water use, and compare their performance against a national average for buildings of a similar type.

By enrolling in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, you can take part in the 25 x 20 Voluntary Energy Benchmarking Campaign, an effort of the St. Louis High Performance Building Initiative to challenge the region to reduce energy use by 25% by 2020. This is part of a two-part Energy Benchmarking Education Session. The first session, on April 10, 2014 is an Overview of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager featuring Mike Zatz, the manager of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Commercial Buildings Program.
