Comparing the energy and water usage for a portfolio of buildings can provide valuable insight for property managers. You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Benchmarking provides a simple and effective tool for owners and potential purchasers alike to compare buildings’ energy and water consumption with similar buildings, to start to understand how efficiently it is running.
Whether you just want to understand your building better so that you can measure the results of your energy efficiency improvements, or, you need to comply with NYC LL84, Bright Energy Services will help you measure the energy use of your facility and to compare your facility with other, similar facilities. Bright Energy Services will manage your building’s data using EPA’s Portfolio Manager software and, if required, upload it to the municipality for local law compliance.
If, after performing benchmarking, a facility manager / owner wishes to pursue Energy Star certification, Bright Energy Services can assist with step-by-step improvements to energy and financial performance by helping the organization make a commitment, assess the building energy performance, set goals, create and implement an action plan, evaluate progress, and recognize these achievements through certification. An Energy Star certified facility meets strict energy performance standards set by EPA and uses less energy, is less expensive to operate, and causes fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its peers.
