Baseline & Benchmark
You’ve heard it time and time again, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” Energy benchmarking is the practice of measuring how much energy a building uses and compares that against other similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward managing a building’s energy efficiency.
However, to be able to benchmark energy, you first must determine a baseline. Collected information of a building’s energy performance for a period of time establishes a baseline for energy consumption. This baseline serves as a starting point for setting energy management goals and calculating energy improvements.
Benchmarking of energy is a powerful tool to improve energy efficiency and is designed to help you:
- Understand how energy is consumed within a building or portfolio of buildings
- Assess how the building(s) compare to other similar buildings
- Identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement
- Provide basis of an energy management plan to drive continuous improvement
