On August 26, 2018, EPA updated the score model for Hotels.
- The average Hotel score went up by 1 point.*
- There were no changes to the Use Details required for the score calculation.
On September 13, 2018, EPA implemented a review period, during which we solicited feedback on the application of the models to various commercial building sectors and the resulting scores. The review (summarized in this report) determined that the model is scoring hotels properly.
*Because your buildings may differ from the typical building used in our analysis, the change in your building’s ENERGY STAR score will vary from the published average depending on its energy use, fuel mix, business activity, property type, and other variables. Furthermore, by definition, roughly half of buildings of any type should have larger decreases than average, and half should have smaller decreases.
