This beginning level seminar is designed for non-residential building owners/managers/consultants and real estate professionals who want to track and understand their building’s energy usage using a free online tool called ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Learn how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) benchmarking tool can guide investment priorities, identify under-performing buildings, verify energy-efficiency improvements, and how buildings can receive EPA recognition for superior energy performance. Portfolio Manager can also be used to comply with the California State law that requires disclosure of a building’s energy benchmarking score at the time of sale, lease, or refinancing.
