2 Agenda ENERGY STAR for Buildings Overview of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager Drivers of Benchmarking Regulatory Trends Translating Information into Action ENERGY STAR Certification 2

3 ENERGY STAR Markets 20,000 Partners across a range of sectors… Commercial Buildings Industrial Plants Qualified Products Residential 3

4 What is ENERGY STAR for Buildings? EPA voluntary climate protection partnership with energy users and service and product providers Helps organizations measure, track, and improve energy performance Helps organizations save energy and money and protect the environment Brand recognition - 80% of Americans 4

5 ENERGY STAR Buildings Program Since 2000: 300,000 buildings measured energy performance organizations joined as partners 19,000 buildings earned the ENERGY STAR across 50 states 5

6 Assess Energy Performance Set Goals Implement Projects Document Savings Recognize Achievements A Strategic Approach to Energy Management 6

7 What is ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager? Free, online, benchmarking tool for buildings Tracks energy intensity, cost, emissions Normalizes for weather, operating hours, occupant density, and other characteristics Offers measure of whole-building actual energy performance via easy to understand 1 to 100 score Provides ENERGY STAR building certification 7

8 Is 60 MPG high or low for this automobile? Is 90 kBtu/SF/YR high or low for this building? Fuel Efficiency: MPG Energy Performance Score: 1 to 100 Portfolio Manager Benchmarking 8

12 ENERGY STAR Buildings Are A Market Differentiator Commercial Real Estate properties: Save $.50 sq/ft (on average) Consume 35% less energy AND Savings persist over time Occupancy/tenant retention is higher Savings leveraged into higher asset value upon disposition Kats & Perlman,

13 Activity Continues to Grow Over 19,000 buildings ENERGY STAR certified Over 300,000 buildings benchmarked 13

14 Whats Driving Benchmarking? Energy costs Corporate citizenship and recognition Green buildings and GHG mitigation Utility programs and Incentives Federal government leasing requirements Energy disclosure legislation and regulation 14

15 Disclosure and Energy Benchmarking Purpose of disclosure: Increase transparency of building performance Encourage energy efficiency improvements in buildings Grow clean energy job market Tool: Portfolio Manager is the standard 15

18 Legislation: Driving the Market for Efficiency Charts used with permission of the Institute for Market Transformation See Policy Impact Projection on Building Area (in Square Feet) by Jurisdiction Policy Impact Projection on Number of Buildings by Jurisdiction 18

19 Why Policy Makers are Choosing Portfolio Manager Free, independent, third-party government tool National, accessible, consistent platform Delivers whole-building energy performance based on actual utility data Data sharing option available –Automated Benchmarking System (ABS) can facilitate the upload of utility data 19

20 Driving Compliance Communication channels to drive compliance: Local and state government agencies Building owners and managers Universities Associations and NGOs Energy service providers 20

21 Beyond Compliance: Improve Energy Performance Conduct low-cost pre-audits of building energy use Identify under-performing buildings to target for energy efficiency improvements Establish baselines to set goals and measure progress 21

22 Portfolio in Benchmark Order Comprehensive investment opportunities where there is the greatest potential for whole building improvement Invest Deeper Lighting improvements will yield savings and certification candidates High Return Invest Reward & Learn High scoring buildings provide ENERGY STAR certification candidates Identify Priorities for Upgrades Across Building Portfolios 22

23 Follow a Strategic Approach for Building Upgrades Benchmark Benchmark Benchmark Benchmark Benchmark 23

24 Earn the ENERGY STAR for Commercial Buildings Recognition for top energy performance Over 19,000 buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR to date Geographic mapping of all certified buildings online National Average Superior Energy Management! 1 to 100 Energy Performance Scale

25 The ENERGY STAR Building Certification Application Process Submit Applicant submits verified documents to EPA Verify Licensed Professional validates: Building information Indoor air quality Thermal comfort Lighting levels Benchmark Score a 75 or higher in Portfolio Manager 25

26 Key Roles and Responsibilities of the Licensed Professional Verify that all information supplied to EPA is accurate Verify that the building is fully functional in accordance with ASHRAE standards Assess whether a healthy and comfortable work environment exists in the building Stamp / Sign ENERGY STAR application 26

27 Maintain Top Performance Based on 12 months of actual operating and utility data Eligible to reapply one year later Statement of Energy Performance (SEP) provides documentation EPA audits selected ENERGY STAR certified buildings 27
