Benchmarking Building Energy Performance

This website allows you to:

  1. Quickly benchmark your building's energy performance (a rating).
  2. Approximate energy use and cost savings from building energy upgrades.
You can benchmark these 24 building types:

Elementary/middle school1
High school1
Distribution/shipping center1
Clinic/other outpatient health
Convenience store
Motel or inn
Nursing home/assisted living1
Post office/postal center
Retail store1
Fire station/police station
Hospital/inpatient health
Grocery store/food market
Other public order and safety
Refrigerated warehouse
Non-refrigerated warehouse
Medical office (diagnostic)1
Fast food
1Regional "close-to-home" distribution provided for this building type. National distributions provided for others.

Created and maintained by the Buildings Technology Center at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We are grateful to the states of Iowa, Colorado, Florida, Vermont, and the Asia-Pacific countries who shared energy use and cost data on their buildings and industrial facilities.

Initial research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Buildings Technology Program.
