Buildings are responsible for one-half of carbon emissions in Portland, Oregon, U.S., and improving their performance is critical to achieving the City’s climate goals.
As part of its climate action plan, the City of Portland (City) requires commercial buildings greater than 50,000 square feet (ft2) to benchmark and disclose annual energy performance through ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® (ESPM).
This report summarizes the evaluation approach and research results to inform future coordination of ESPM and Asset Score data, including the use of benchmarking data to preview building Asset Scores.
Given better awareness of energy performance, building managers, energy service providers, and utility incentive administrators can make more informed decisions to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions.
This paper was presented at the ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings Conference in August 2018.
