  • 1992: including personal computers and monitors
  • 1995: to help businesses simultaneously improve their energy performance and increase their bottom line
  • Portfolio Manager is used to determine if a building qualifies for the Energy Star Label. Buildings’ energy consumption is compared with their peers: buildings of similar size, function/use type, climate zone, age. Scale of 0 (worst) to 100 (best). A building with a score of 50 means that half of the similar buildings use more energy per sq ft, and half use less energy per sq ft. Buildings with score of 75 (using less energy than ¾ of their peers, in the top quartile of energy efficiency) or higher can apply for Energy Star certification.

  • Maybe show a slide of cities/states where ESTAR ratings have been mandated by legislation. Two states and seven cities (CA and WA state,WashDC, Austin TX, NYC, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and soon Minneapolis) – more are coming (www.buildingrating.org) Typically require benchmarking for non-residential buildings of more than 50,000 sq ft, public buildings greater than 10,000 sq ft.According to the EPA, ENERGY STAR rated buildings use 35% less energy and are responsible for 35% less GHG than average buildings“Executive commitment” is a key, according to EPA
  • Ratings and informational. (i.e. you get EUI and carbon footprint but not a rating), so you should explain the difference and show both lists.
  • Even if a rating can’t be achieved, still useful for EUI (Energy Use Intensity – sq ft energy consumption) and green house gas emission calculations – and also for compliance if required by local legislation
  • Even if a rating can’t be achieved, still useful for EUI (Energy Use Intensity – sq ft energy consumption) and green house gas emission calculations – and also for compliance if required by local legislation
  • This is the existing PM tool. In the process of a complete software rewrite, it is predicted to be offline for about two weeks in mid June 2013. If you are required by legislation to benchmark your building, it could cost several thousand dollars to have an architecture or engineering firm perform this service. EnergyCAP takes the work out of benchmarking by automatically submitting your buildings to PM every time a new bill is entered.
  • http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=spp_res.pt_spps_automated_benchmarking The process: set up your building for energy star submission, EnergyCAP performs a series of data quality checks so we don’t send incomplete data to PM, then you will get a new rating whenever you enter a bill. EnergyCAP stores the history of your submissions, so you can see how you are doing over time. “set it and forget it”
  • Edit building properties to activate energy star submittal
  • Primary use in this screen is for EnergyCAP groupings – NOT the energy star rating types (you will have the opportunity to select that in a following screen) Make sure that the address and zip code are correct.
  • Must have a building sq footage – easiest to include this when the building is created in EnergyCAP. Can change over time – use the plus sign to update floor area as of a specific date. Tip: Floor area calculations for energy star: take the outside building dimension and multiply by the number of floors. Tax rolls are generally inaccurate for floor area.
  • Checkbox will enable automatic ratings – as soon as you have 12 contiguous months of data, then every time you add a new bill Different space types require different inputs, EnergyCAP prompts you for the required information
  • Often buildings have several different use spaces in one building: parking, data centers (more than just a server room) building with senior care (ratable) and assisted living (non-ratable). Select ENERGY STAR additional space type, will add tab with required characteristics for that space type. Fill in all information on all tabs
  • To receive a rating, you must include 12 months of data for meters for all fuel. You do not have to include water or sewer (this may change!), or non-fuels that you may be tracking. (examples: include chilled water, steam, do not include telecom charges or garbage pickup). Also can be used in troubleshooting: if you are getting an error message saying you have gaps in data, excluding meters can help you track down the causeIf you change the meters, be sure to RESET Portfolio Data for this building – will trigger submittal
  • Submitting data happens automatically, once per day. Results: scroll to right to get additional results, green house gas data etc. History is saved, including any messages returned
  • (need to find a database with lots of buildings in it, permission to show) City of DenverAN24:Reports ENERGY STAR rating information including Rating Date, Rating and Notes.
  • (need to find a database with lots of buildings in it, permission to show) City of DenverAN24A: Reports ENERGY STAR Ratings with history. Includes Rating Date, Rating and Notes. Grouped by Place Type and sorted by Place. Historic ratings for each place are sorted in reverse chronological order (most recent rating first).
