14 cities and 2 states now have benchmarking regulations!

With the addition of Kansas City, MO there are now 14 cities and two states in the United States that require buildings to benchmark their energy usage. While there are various building types, sizes, and deadlines, all these regulations specify using the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Portfolio Manager as the rating tool.

Benchmarking is the process of calculating how much energy your building is using and then comparing that figure to other similar buildings. Portfolio Manager can be used to benchmark just about any type of building in any part of the United States. About 40 percent of the commercial buildings in the United States are currently using Portfolio Manager. And now the Canadian Government has decided to use Portfolio Manager as the tool for their national energy benchmarking program for existing commercial and institutional buildings.
