Leveraging Benchmarking to Build Your Business -
Given the implementation schedule for AB1103 and the City of San Francisco’s Commercial Building Energy Ordinance, thousands of commercial buildings across the state either are or will soon be required to benchmark their energy use with ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager tool. Offering this service can be a great way to launch your business, expand your services, or get your foot in the door with new prospects. In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn how to use advanced features of Portfolio Manager that will allow you to demonstrate just how (in)efficient your customer’s buildings really are and how to gauge the impact of energy improvements. You’ll also learn strategies for generating leads; how to price benchmarking-related offerings; how to cross-sell and up-sell your other offerings; how to demonstrate the value of efficiency in terms that your clients understand and value; how to motivate the various stakeholders to act on energy efficiency measures; and much more!

Learn how to use the new and improved Energy Star Portfolio Manager tool! California law (AB 1103) will soon require the disclosure of an energy performance benchmarking score prior to selling, refinancing, or leasing certain whole buildings. Learn how to benchmark your building's energy performance with the help of PG&E's Automated Benchmarking Service – a free, easy-to-use service that automatically sends your commercial building's energy use information to the EPA's ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager every month. This class will include a hands-on benchmarking exercise using portable WiFi hotspots so that attendees can evaluate an actual building from start to finish and see the ENERGY STAR score.

Getting your building's benchmarking score is just the beginning. This course explores how to set targets for improvement: estimating the actual amount of energy savings needed to reach a higher score; which low-cost and no-cost or capital upgrades might produce various magnitudes of savings; which utility incentive programs could help identify or finance those improvements; etc. It's not about what your building's score is today—it's about what you want that score to be and how to get it there!
