The Basics of Commercial Energy Benchmarking
Commercial building energy benchmarking is the bedrock for helping you to create an energy use strategy for your facility. After all, you need to know how to measure efficiency improvements in order to be able to manage energy use. What you can’t measure, you can’t control! With people more aware than ever of the importance of environmental and sustainability issues, commercial energy performance benchmarking has become an essential practice.
The process of benchmarking is to compare and measure the performance of a facility against itself, similar buildings, or set standards. Our technicians will create a benchmarking plan and the tools necessary to gather data, analyze and interpret it, and deliver results. Based on the results, building managers can make choices about upgrades and improvements.
Energy Benchmarking Gives You Resources and Goals
Energy benchmarking does make a difference. The US Environmental Protection Agency conducted a recent study that found, on average, buildings that received energy benchmarking consistently use 2.4% less energy than those that didn’t.
Think of benchmarking as "energy accounting," which is just as important as financial accounting for your facility. Benchmarking gives you the data on comparisons that will tell you where your facility stands. You can ensure your building meets all compliance standards. Energy benchmarking can point you toward even greater sustainability and efficiency. Energy benchmarking provides you with goals and even stirs up a spirit of healthy competition when you compare your facility’s energy use to similar facilities.
