What will be updated in the August 2018 "Score Update?" Follow

All properties (scoreable and non-scoreable) will see an update to their metrics in Portfolio Manager. The updates will include:

  1. The underlying ENERGY STAR models for the following property types will be updated based on 2012 CBECS data:
    • Office, Financial Office, Bank, Courthouse
    • Retail
    • Supermarket
    • K-12 School
    • Hotel
    • Warehouse
    • Worship Facility
  2. Site-to-source conversion factors will be updated from 3.1 to 2.8. This will affect all property types. These factors reflect the current energy market.
  3. National Median values will be updated based on the 2012 CBECS data.
  4. Data Center benchmarking options will be updated to offer the use of Estimated IT Energy to get a score and certification.

We recommend pursuing 2018 ENERGY STAR certification prior to June 2018, in case your property’s score changes, rather than waiting for the 2018 update to go into place.
