1 ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager Measure and Track Your Building’s
Energy Performance Pat McGuckin The Cadmus Group, Inc. In Support of U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR Program

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

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

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

5 ENERGY STAR Buildings Program
Since 2000: 300,000 buildings measured energy performance 9.000 organizations joined as partners 19,000 buildings earned the ENERGY STAR across 50 states

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

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

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

9 User-Friendly Inputs Examples All Space Types K-12 School Office
Address Year Built At least 12 months energy data K-12 School SF # Walk-in refrigerator freezer units # PC’s Open weekends Y/N Cooking Y/N High School Y/N % Heated % AC Office # Workers Op. hrs. % AC Supermarket Grocery Op. hrs Examples

10 Document and Communicate Energy Performance

11 Senior Care Communities Wastewater Treatment Plants*
Building Types Eligible to Receive an ENERGY STAR Score Bank/Financial Institutions Courthouses Data Centers Dormitories Hospitals Hotels Houses of Worship K-12 Schools Medical Offices Office Buildings Retail Stores Senior Care Communities Supermarkets Warehouses Wastewater Treatment Plants* 11

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, 2006

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

14 What’s 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

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

16 State and Local Policies Leveraging Portfolio Manager

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

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

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

22 Identify Priorities for Upgrades Across Building Portfolios
100 High scoring buildings provide ENERGY STAR certification candidates Reward & Learn 75 High Return Invest Lighting improvements will yield savings and certification candidates Portfolio in Benchmark Order 50 Comprehensive investment opportunities where there is the greatest potential for whole building improvement Invest Deeper 25 1 22

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

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 Superior Energy Management! National Average 1 50 75 100 1 to 100 Energy Performance Scale

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

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

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
