Any building can benchmark energy, water, GHG, and financial performance in Portfolio Manager, but only certain buildings are eligible to earn the 1-100 ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Score. ENERGY STAR Scores are currently available for the following building types: offices, K-12 schools, supermarkets, hotels, residence halls and dormitories, certain medical facilities, and warehouses. These ratings compare energy use and characteristics at your building to buildings across the country. Accounting for differences in weather, size, occupancy, and operating hours, buildings are assigned a score from 0-100. Buildings that earn a 75 or higher are eligible to receive an ENERGY STAR certification.
Most of the buildings operated by a local government such as Arlington County do not fall into these categories, including fire stations, libraries, community centers, and other mixed-use or specialty buildings.
