ENERGY STAR® benchmarking
EEFG helps clients benchmark their facilities’ energy performance. EEFG will collect the required information and enter it into EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to generate an ENERGY STAR benchmark score and produce a Statement of Energy Performance. For buildings that earn scores of 75 or higher, EEFG will arrange to have a licensed building professional verify the results and obtain an ENERGY STAR label for the facility.
The ENERGY STAR label is a nationally recognized icon that will communicate your superior energy performance to management, customers, and shareholders. To learn more about ENERGY STAR, visit www.energystar.gov.
EEFG is ideally qualified to help organizations benchmark their buildings’ energy performance using EPA’s Portfolio Manager tool. EEFG was part of the original team that helped the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) test and deploy the ENERGY STAR label in 1998. Working in support of the EPA, Mark Jewell personally recruited owners and managers representing more than two billion square feet of properties to begin using this tool to make their buildings more competitive, profitable, and valuable. Since then, his team has helped hundreds of buildings get benchmarked.
Since 2010, EEFG has offered more than 50 benchmarking trainings for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), Southern California Gas (SoCalGas), the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). EEFG has provided benchmarking training and related services to more than 70 local governments. Recently, the City and County of San Francisco’s Department of Environment engaged EEFG to develop and deliver outreach and training services to support its new benchmarking and auditing ordinance.
