The Building Energy Benchmarking Dashboard is an interactive tool that displays key data collected through benchmarking efforts at the state and local level throughout the region. The purpose of the dashboard is to show the impacts and trends that benchmarking policies have relative to the amount of building space being benchmarked (i.e. number of buildings and square footage) and the actual energy and associated greenhouse gas emission reductions (i.e. EUI, ENERGY STAR Score, and GHG Emissions). The dashboard utilizes the most recent data that was made available by each jurisdiction.
City-level data is publicly available information, posted to websites operated by each individual city. NEEP utilized the raw data for this tool and verified the information to the best of our ability. Within the dashboard, you will find the data source linked for each city.
State-level data is generally less available online. To obtain this data, NEEP worked with our state energy office partners. For more information about this data, please see the contact information at the bottom of this page.
For assistance with benchmarking policies, NEEP has many free online resources, as well as direct one-on-one technical assistance.
