Energy Star Portfolio Manager now for hospitals
June 24, 2014 - Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan’s) Energy Star Portfolio Manager—a free, interactive, energy management tool that allows users to track and assess energy across the entire portfolio of buildings—is now being offered to hospitals. Previously only available K-12 schools and commercial offices, the tool claims to be the only Canadian standardized energy benchmarking platform that uses a national data set. It features an energy performance scale that boasts a more precise reflection of actual energy performance and takes into account weather, source energy and other key variables. Performance improvements can be tracked over time by comparing current performance to an established baseline.
