Save Energy, Save Money with ENERGY STAR®
Improve the Energy Efficiency of Your Buildings

Through ENERGY STAR, EPA offers a wide range of ENERGY STAR resources to help you take control of the energy performance of your buildings. Did you know that, on average, 30 percent of the energy used to run commercial buildings goes to waste? With rising energy costs and tightening budgets, it's more important than ever to improve the efficiency of your buildings. Get started saving energy and money for your organization by following the steps below.   

Join as a Partner
Demonstrate your commitment to managing fiscal and environmental resources responsibly by joining as an ENERGY STAR partner. EPA’s ENERGY STAR partnership offers a proven energy management strategy that helps you measure current energy performance, set goals, track savings, and get recognition for improvements. Becoming an ENERGY STAR partner is easy, and there is no cost to partner with ENERGY STAR or use ENERGY STAR promotional materials.

Benchmark Your Energy Performance
The first step to improving energy performance is determining your current baseline. After all, you can't manage what you don't measure. Use EPA’s ENERGY STAR measurement and tracking tool, Portfolio Manager, to benchmark the energy and water performance of your buildings. Portfolio Manager is an interactive energy management tool that enables you to track and assess energy and water consumption across an entire portfolio of buildings in a secure online environment. Portfolio Manager can help you set investment priorities, identify under-performing buildings to target for upgrades, and track the results of efficiency efforts.
