Building IQ is part of a in a community-wide effort to keep our city, and our planet, healthy and thriving by helping commercial and multi-family buildings save energy and water. Buildings in Aspen account for 58% of greenhouse gas emissions. As a community, we are committed to reducing overall emissions 80% by 2050. Through energy saving improvements and energy and water benchmarking, building owners can increase profitability, tenants can see lower utility bills, and the City can make more informed, data-driven decisions - all directed towards helping us achieve our goal.
Benchmarking your building’s energy and water use is a great way to identify potential efficiency improvements, lower your utility bills, and compare your building’s usage to other buildings of similar size and use-type. Benchmarking alone can help reduce energy use by 2-3% per year. We recommend using Portfolio Manager to help manage this process.
Portfolio Manager is a free, user-friendly platform provided by the EPA to help building owners track their building’s energy and water usage.
