What does an energy audit accomplish?

The audit process identifies, at a minimum:

  • All reasonable measures, including capital improvements, that could reduce energy use and/or the cost of building operations
  • For each measure, the associated annual energy savings, the cost to implement, and the return on investment
  • The building’s benchmarking output consistent with the EPA’s Portfolio Manager tool
  • A breakdown of energy usage by system and the predicted energy savings after¬†implementation of proposed measures
  • A general assessment of how the major energy consuming equipment and systems used within tenant spaces impact the energy consumption of the base building systems
