The City of Seattle offers this free workshop for building owners, property managers and service providers to support compliance with the City of Seattle's building energy benchmarking and disclosure ordinance. This hands-on session will teach you how to benchmark your building's energy performance using the free on-line tool ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager. Due to the recent upgrade of Portfolio Manager, Seattle City Light, Puget Sound Energy and Seattle Steam are working on upgrading their systems to automatically upload energy meter usage (data exchange), and are not expected to have their instructions ready for new users until after the date of this workshop. Therefore, we will not be able to provide instruction on the utility data exchange services at this workshop.
We will still hold this workshop and will cover the following topics:
Learn How To:
- Updates to Seattle Benchmarking requirements and deadlines
- Introduction to new Portfolio Manager tool
- Adding a property
- Adding utility data manually (from utility bills to Portfolio Manager)
- Generating reports and graphs
