B3 Benchmarking allows you to compare buildings from four major benchmarking perspectives:
An engineering model using DOE-2 simulations and B3 energy standards to compare a building’s actual use to expected use.
An evaluation of a building to our database of buildings with similar space usage and geographic location provides true peer comparison.
A simple 1-100 score produced by ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager analyzes a building against similar buildings across the U.S.
A weather-normalized comparison of a building's consumption to itself over time provides monthly and annual analysis.
