Benchmarking or rating your commercial building’s energy performance is a great way to identify energy and money saving opportunities. Find out how benchmarking with EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, a free on-line energy management tool, will provide useful information to increase your, or your client’s, building’s energy performance.

Elizabeth Vasatka, from Boulder’s Local Environmental Action Division (LEAD) will provide an overview of the city’s evolving interest in helping commercial property owners move toward greater energy efficiency and will introduce a new voluntary benchmarking pilot program.

EPA Energy Star Manager, Leslie Cook, will conduct a live webinar demonstration on how to use Portfolio Manager and the benefits of using it.

Andria Lewis, Owner of Boulder Creek Quality Inn and Dana J. Sailer-Mielke, General Manager and will talk about benchmarking this property and achieving Energy Star Certification.

Who Should Attend:  Commercial property owners, managers and brokers; contractors who are focused on measuring and managing energy use on commercial building.
