Energy Benchmarking

energy benchmarking chicago

Energy benchmarking in buildings is a valuable tool for cities, counties, building owners, and tenants alike. Elevate Energy has implementation experience at every stage of the benchmarking process. We can put that experience to work for you in numerous ways:

  • Assist in drafting an energy benchmarking ordinance
  • Synthesize numerous data sources to identify covered and exempt buildings
  • Educate building owners about the benchmarking process
  • Operate a full-time Help Center to provide personalized support to building owners via phone and email
  • Review submitted benchmarking information to identify incomplete or inaccurate data
  • Report out on energy benchmarking results, such as number of buildings covered, compliance rates, potential energy savings, and potential greenhouse gas reductions
