An upgrade to the BuildingAdvice energy services program is available. Automation and increased usability are the key improvements to the platform, which now automates generation of Energy Star benchmarking reports, evaluating the current and potential energy efficiency of existing commercial buildings. New aspects of the program include Energy Benchmark, which determines a building’s Energy Star rating and current utility cost per square foot relative to comparable properties and evaluates the savings potential; Energy Savings Assessment, which identifies low- or no-cost opportunities to save energy by adjusting current systems and processes; and Energy Savings Audit, which evaluates ROI of energy-saving building improvements by calculating projected utility savings on an annual basis. The Building Data Management System (BDMS) offers a building-centric data architecture, storing utility bill and other building information for use in any of the energy report types. Integration with Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager means that contractors, property managers, and energy engineers who use the BuildingAdvice Energy Benchmark application have complete building information stored in Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager. MultiLogOn, another added BuildingAdvice feature, enables users to collaborate on energy-efficiency projects with other team members, or to work on multiple projects at any given time.
