? Portfolio Manager Data Collection Worksheet ENERGY STAR
This worksheet was designed to help building owners and managers collect data to benchmark
buildings using EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. The information in this worksheet will be
used to establish your building’s profile in Portfolio Manager, which is critical to calculate benchmarks
of key metrics such as energy intensity and costs, water use, and carbon emissions. All building
types can be entered into Portfolio Manager and receive energy and water benchmarks, as
well as a comparison of performance against a national average for buildings of a similar type.
Some buildings will also receive an ENERGY STAR score. The ENERGY STAR score is a benchmark that indicates how
efficiently buildings use energy on a 1-100 scale. A score of 50 indicates that energy performance is average compared to similar buildings, while a score of 75 or better indicates top performance, and means your building may be eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR label. To receive an ENERGY STAR score, the gross floor area of the building must be comprised of more than 50% of one of the following space types: bank/financial institution, courthouse, data center, hospital (general medical and surgical), hotel, house of worship, K-12 school, medical office, office, residence hall/dormitory, retail store, senior care facility, supermarket/grocery store, warehouse (refrigerated and unrefrigerated), and wastewater treatment plant.
Use this worksheet to collect the data for all space types applicable to your facility.
Required Data for ENERGY STAR Benchmarking
; Portfolio Manager username and password.
; The building street address, year built, and contact information.
; The building gross floor area and key operating characteristics for each major space type. Use this worksheet to
collect this information before logging in to Portfolio Manager.
; 12 consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building. If you don’t have this information
readily available, contact your utility provider(s) as most will be able to easily supply this historical information.

Space Use Attributes
Before compiling the information noted in the boxes below, review the following important information:
; Specific definitions and instructions for each of the data fields listed in the boxes below can be viewed by
navigating to Portfolio Manager Help, selecting “Space Type Definitions,” choosing the appropriate building type,
and selecting “Space Use Information.”
; Some buildings may contain multiple space types within a single building (e.g. office, data center, and parking OR
K-12 school and swimming pool). Complete the fields below for each applicable major space types within the
; For buildings with multiple tenants with the same space type, these spaces should be entered separately only
when the number of weekly operating hours among tenants differs by more than 10 hours. For example, in a
100,000 square foot (SF) office building where 75,000 SF operates 60 hours a week and 25,000 SF operates 80
hours a week, please list as two separate spaces – one 75,000 SF space and one 25,000 SF space. As this is
most common in office buildings, multiple office space fields are provided below to capture data for multiple
tenants if necessary.
; Default values supplied by Portfolio Manager can be used for all space use characteristics with the exception of
gross floor area. Using default values will result in an approximate energy performance score which can be a
beneficial metric for estimating energy performance. If defaults are used for an initial score, it is recommended
that actual data be added later to more accurately measure a facility’s energy performance. Facilities using
default values are not eligible to apply for the ENERGY STAR label. Leave any of the requested information
below blank (except gross floor area) to use a default value for the field.
