We’d like Your Feedback: What Does Energy Scoring and Benchmarking Mean to Your Business?

Fort Collins Utilities is exploring options for a potential building energy scoring and benchmarking program that could impact local businesses. 

Cities across the nation have implemented similar programs in recent years—and we’d like your feedback on how a program could be shaped in our community. Information will be compiled for staff and the community working group and reviewed with City Council in late 2018. 

Benefits

Utility costs can be one of the largest expenses of a business. Energy scoring and benchmarking can provide ways to manage these expenses and help owners, property managers and tenants: 

  • understand their building’s energy use
  • establish a baseline for tracking and identifying opportunities to reduce energy-related costs

Other Efficiency Programs
Utilities’ offers free assessments, rebates and incentives, technical assistance, training and education to support reductions in energy use.

Benchmarking helps building owners and property managers understand their facilities' energy use and identify opportunities to reduce energy-related costs.

Comparing the energy performance of one building to that of a similar facility also allows commercial real estate professionals, property managers, owners, investors and tenants to:

  • evaluate the highest-performing, lowest-operating cost options
  • monitor building performance in the marketplace

Utilities’ Building Energy Scoring initiative uses the ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager, a free online tool developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for energy scoring and benchmarking.
