What is an EcoCosm Benchmark Rating?
An ENERGY STAR Statement of Energy Performance or benchmark rating documents your building energy consumption. The Statement of Energy Performance provides useful energy and environmental metrics for your building.
- An Energy Performance Rating which compares your building to others of the same type on a scale from 1-100 (100 being the most energy efficient).
- Energy Intensity, also known as Energy Use Index (EUI), which is the energy use per square foot measured in kilo-British thermal units per year or kBtu/sf/yr
- Emissions data which measures greenhouse gasses in Metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year (MtCO2e)
The performance of each building is normalized for:
- building size
- space type
- hours of operation
- plug loads
Normalized data allows for your building to be compared to statistically representative models drawn from a national survey of buildings known as the Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS).Get Free Estimate…
