Reference data was updated (this is done annually). Of note is that Site-to-source conversion factor for electricity was updated from 3.1 to 2.8. This affects all property types. This update reflects improvements to the electric grid’s efficiency.
National Median values were updated based on the 2012 CBECS data.
A new option ("Data Center Estimated Energy") is now available to buildings that have a Data Center tenant to receive a score and certification if the data center is not properly metered. This option is not available to standalone data centers.
- Office, Financial Office, Bank, Courthouse
- K-12 School

Note: None of the data that you "input" into Portfolio Manager has been changed. This includes: meters, meter entries, property uses, property use details, and basic property information.
