Analyzing energy data


Your energy data can help you to flag and quantify potential energy savings for various energy-saving activities. With a little bit of investigation, such as the more detailed analysis offered by an energy audit, you can usually figure out what is causing any observed energy waste.

The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager energy benchmarking tool can provide you with an indication of your building's normalized performance relative to other buildings in your portfolio or to other similar buildings in Canada. The results of your benchmarking analysis will help you determine whether or not you need to conduct an energy audit, which will enable you to prioritize your energy actions and draw your attention to the projects with the greatest potential for energy savings.
