Utilities Increase Access to Energy Data to Help Commercial Customers Benchmark

As energy benchmarking becomes standard practice in the commercial building industry, owners and managers of buildings are seeking to simplify the process of obtaining utility data.

In addition, as the U.S. EPA's Energy Star Portfolio Manager has become the tool of choice for most organizations to benchmark their energy and water performance, these owners and managers are also looking for ways to streamline the entry of utility data into the tool.

The good news is that more and more utilities are stepping up to assist owners and operators by making aggregate whole-building data readily available, and by enabling customers to have their data sent automatically into their Portfolio Manager account via web services. The result? Customers spend less time gathering and inputting data and more time working on saving energy; and utilities are better able to understand the characteristics and energy performance of their customers' buildings, thereby allowing for more targeted identification of energy savings opportunities.
