Utilizing Building Energy Compliance to Improve Business Performance

Buildings need help. The growing demand by local governments for low energy consumption buildings is leading to mandates for better building energy efficiency performance. In some localities, building owners are faced with fines for failing to take action. This paper outlines how the building energy benchmarking initiatives work and reviews the steps that need to be taken in order for building owners to comply with the mandates.

Energy and Volatility

Energy costs are dynamic and can change rapidly. By example, US natural gas prices increased by 30% in one month in 2014. You need to manage and predict energy spend, but price volatility creates risk, which can hurt profitability. In fact, most companies could increase their EBITDA by an average of 5% if they improve energy performance best practices.

However, this data can be scattered and hard to use. 66% of data is stored in disparate systems. The net effect of this is that less than 1% of global data is leveraged to make effective decisions. With all the data available, it can become challenging to make efficient and effective decisions.
