Energize Denver: Energy Star Benchmarking Jam on August 16 in Denver
Event Description

This high-energy jam session will not only help you benchmark your building, but also help you develop strategies to improve building performance and decrease utility bills.

Bring your laptop and energy usage data for your building and go through the entire benchmarking process in-person with experts in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager!

You will work in teams with benchmarking experts to benchmark your building using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Teams will also identify strategies for increased performance and decreased utility bills.

This workshop is to supplement Energize Denver Benchmarking Ordinance Trainings. Participants must collect preliminary data about their building prior to attending including gross floor area and basic property usage details.

Participants will also need to either bring calendar year 2016 energy usage data or else ensuring they are an authorized user for that building's Xcel Energy account so the data can be found during the Jam session.
