Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s BetterBricks and the City of Seattle offer free workshops for building owners, property managers and service providers to support compliance with the City of Seattle’s building energy benchmarking and disclosure ordinance.
Participants will learn:
How to benchmark building energy performance using the free on-line tool ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
The ordinance reporting requirements and new services available for automated benchmarking from Seattle City Light, Puget Sound Energy and Seattle Steam.
How to use technical and financial resources available from BetterBricks and local utilities to plan and implement energy conservation projects.
Participants will create an account in Portfolio Manager and begin the initial energy performance rating for their building(s) with individual guidance from an experienced benchmarking instructor and technical assistants. A data collection sheet will be emailed to registrants prior to the workshop for participants that want to bring data from their own buildings to the session. Sample building data will be available for participants who do not bring their own data.
