Why and How to Benchmark Building Energy Use – the 1st steps to ENERGY STAR for your commercial building.
Presented by Paul Kriescher, Principal, Lightly Treading, Inc. (as part of the Golden Earth Days Sustainability Education Series)
Benchmarking a building’s utility bills is the first step to learning if your building is an energy hog or not. By comparing your building’s consumption with comparable buildings from across the U.S. you have the context to learn if there are low-hanging fruit opportunities to cut energy use or if your building is already a leader that is ready to earn ENERGY STAR certification. Paul Kriescher will guide us through many utility savings opportunities in commercial buildings while explaining the process of Benchmarking a building’s bills.
