Why do the Industry Average numbers on the SEP differ for properties of the same type? Follow

The cost and consumption metrics reported in the Industry Average column are not fixed statistics, but instead are theoretical metrics for that particular property if that property was performing "average" with respect to energy consumption. When the property is eligible for a score, the Industry Average reflects what the cost and consumption metrics would be for that property if it were to have a score of 50. For properties ineligible for a score, the Industry Average reflects what the cost and consumption metrics would be if the property's source energy intensity were the same as the national average source energy intensity for that property type. Since these metrics are normalized by the floorspace and actual cost and consumption metrics for the property, the average column will show different metrics for different properties of the same type.
