Benefits of Benchmarking
The Impact of Energy Benchmarking.
A number of market studies have shown that buildings with above average energy performance have higher occupancy rates, command higher rents and sell at a premium when compared to similar buildings. Results from cities with energy transparency ordinances indicate that properties commonly start seeing energy use and cost savings of 4-10% after the first one to two years that they have benchmarked.
