Portfolio Manager is a free, online software that enables building owners and managers to track and evaluate a facility’s energy and water consumption over time. Buildings that perform in the top 25% of their peers, receiving a minimum score of 75/100, are eligible to receive the ENERGY STAR certification.
ENERGY STAR certification shows that a building meets strict energy performance standards set by the EPA. Buildings that are ENERGY STAR certified are seen as top performers in energy-efficiency when compared to other peer buildings. Benefits of gaining ENERGY STAR certification include lower operating costs, higher marketability, fewer greenhouse gas emissions and higher rental rates.
