NEEA BetterBricks and the City of Seattle offer 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. Participants will also learn about the ordinance reporting requirements and new services available for automated benchmarking from Seattle City Light, Puget Sound Energy and Seattle Steam. Workshop participants will create an account in Portfolio Manager and begin the initial energy performance rating for their building with individual guidance from an experienced benchmarking instructor and technical assistants. Participants are welcome to bring data from their own buildings to the session. A data collection sheet will be emailed to you prior to the workshop. Sample building data will be available for participants who do not bring their own data. Participants will learn about technical and financial resources available from BetterBricks and their local utility to plan and implement energy conservation projects.
