How do you measure and track energy use in your building? Have you ever heard of the Energy Star Portfolio Manger? With this tool, you can manage and see energy and water usage in your building, and rate its performance.
You’ve heard it before: you can’t manage what you don’t measure. That’s why EPA created ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®, an online tool you can use to measure and track energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Use it to benchmark the performance of one building or a whole portfolio of buildings, all in a secure online environment.
Using Energy Star Portfolio Manager
Portfolio Manager is an interactive resource management tool that enables you to track and assess energy and water use across your entire portfolio of buildings … all in a secure online environment. Whether you own, manage, or hold properties for investment, Portfolio Manager can help you set investment priorities, identify under-performing buildings, verify efficiency improvements, and receive EPA recognition for superior energy performance.
More importantly, it can help you implement every step of your energy management program, from setting a baseline and identifying which buildings to target to setting goals and tracking improvements. It’s also the tool for getting recognition from EPA for your efforts. Use it to help you save energy, save money … and protect the environment.
Manage energy and water consumption for any building
You can use Portfolio Manager to manage the energy and water consumption of any building. Simply enter your consumption data, cost information, and operational use details. Portfolio Manager will then help you track more than 100 different metrics. Use them to compare your building’s performance against a yearly baseline, national medians, or similar buildings in your portfolio.
