The 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score is a screening tool that helps you assess how your property is performing compared to similar buildings nationwide. It will help you identify which properties in your portfolio to target for improvement or recognition. A score of 50 is the median. So if your property scores below 50, it means it’s performing worse than 50% of similar properties nationwide, while a score above 50 means it’s performing better than 50% of its peers. A score of 75 or higher means it’s a top performer and may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification.
The 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score compares your property to other properties like it across the country ... not other properties in Portfolio Manager. So when you benchmark in Portfolio Manager, you know the ENERGY STAR score you receive is a comparison of your property based on how it’s used to the national average. The ENERGY STAR score provides a comprehensive snapshot of your property’s energy performance. It assesses the building’s physical assets, operations, and occupant behavior in a quick and easy-to-understand number.
