Updates to ENERGY STAR® Performance Metrics

Every four years, the U.S. Department of Energy conducts a survey of commercial buildings to produce energy performance metrics. The EPA uses the data from this survey as its baseline when comparing your building's performance to that of similar buildings across the country. The most recent survey is now available and the EPA is updating their ENERGY STAR performance metrics to reflect the recent market trends.

The survey results have shown an improvement in the energy performance of buildings in the U.S., so Portfolio Manager users can expect their ratings, on average, to decrease. The EPA will release these new ENERGY STAR metrics on August 26, 2018 and the calculations will be applied to all time periods and historical benchmarking data. Users will want to apply early for 2018 ENERGY STAR certification: applications submitted before July 26, 2018 will be assessed using current metrics and are more likely to get certified.
