ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager
Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a free energy management tool that can help Missouri businesses and communities monitor energy and water improvements?
The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager can help you:
• Manage energy and water consumption for individual buildings and track consumption across entire building portfolios. You can benchmark existing buildings’ performance, assess goals and identify other strategic opportunities for savings.
• Rate building energy performance against similar buildings from a national survey conducted by the Energy Information Association.
• Estimate your carbon footprint by calculating your building’s greenhouse gas emissions from on-site fuel combustion, purchased electricity, district heating, cooling, and renewable energy certificates.
• Set investment priorities with a built in financial tool that will allow you to quickly and clearly obtain cost figures and compare cost savings across building portfolios.
• Verify and track progress of improvement projects by summarizing site and energy intensity, CO2 emissions, and documenting performance in energy service contracts. Tracking can also be used to satisfy requirements for obtaining LEED status for Existing Buildings.
• Gain EPA recognition share your best practices and increase exposure with success stories, or obtain ENERGY STAR recognition.
