What is benchmarking?

Benchmarking provides the basis for empowering building owners to take steps towards minimizing energy use and maximizing the economic benefits of energy conservation measures. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides a tool to track buildings’ annual energy and water consumption. The output of this tool is the EPA energy performance rating, which indicates how efficiently buildings use energy on a 1 to 100 scale. A rating of 50 indicates average energy performance while a rating of 75 or better indicates top performance.

Ratable space types include:

Supermarkets, hospitals, offices, K-12 schools, hotels, medical office buildings, warehouse, residence halls, courthouses, financial centers, retail and other industrial facilities are all ratable space types.

Before You Start – Collect the following Required Information:

1. Building Identifiers: Building name and street address.

2. Energy Use: Invoice copies for all purchased utilities - at least 12 consecutive months for each source.

3. Letter of Agency: Sign the Good Energy letter of limited agency, which will be shared with any tenant or occupant from which Good Energy will request information.

4. Space Type Data: Suite number, space type, square footage and a contact name and number for each space. Good Energy will call each contact to gather additional data points, including hours of operation, number of occupants and number of computers.

Good Energy manages compliance with Local Law 84:

Benchmark the energy use of all of your buildings – all will receive an energy use intensity (EUI) and some will receive ratings on a 1-100 scale.

Track changes in energy use over time in single buildings, groups of buildings, or entire portfolios Ensure ongoing compliance with the law.
