Energy Benchmarking for commercial buildings is rapidly becoming a nationwide industry standard. And as of January 1, the County of San Francisco will begin to enforce Environment Ordinance 101105, as well as California Law AB 1103 – meaning building owners will be required to disclose an energy performance benchmarking score prior to selling, refinancing or leasing certain whole buildings. Energy Efficient Services (EES), the leading Energy Efficient specialists serving companies across all industries, will get you started with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proprietary ENERGY STAR tool, handle the mandatory evaluation process and provide solutions for greater energy efficiency.
In essence, Energy Benchmarking is the process of conducting an evaluation of the amount of energy that a commercial building consumes over the course of a year. By doing so, building owners gain a better understanding of their property’s energy use, the level of greenhouse gas emissions and its overall strengths and weaknesses. Energy Efficient Services specializes in taking the raw data of your building – its gross floor space, year built, etc. – and generating an energy score (on a scale from 1-100) based on comparable models taken from a national survey conducted by the Department of Energy’s Information Administration. Scoring above a 75, which means your building performs better than 75% of all similar buildings, will make your building eligible for the coveted ENERGY STAR label.
