How does your building compare to its peers?

  1. Look through the database above to see how buildings across Atlanta are performing, including your own.
  2. Learn more about the different building performance metrics below.
  3. Check out our Resource Center for resources and tips to improve your building’s performance.

Building Performance Metrics

Energy Metrics

ENERGY STAR Score – The ENERGY STAR Score is a measure of how well your property is performing relative to similar properties, when normalized for climate and operational characteristics. The 1-100 scale is set so that 1 represents the worst performing buildings and 100 represents the best performing buildings. A score of 50 indicates that a building is performing at the national median, taking into account its size, location, and operating parameters. A score of 75 indicates that at a property is performing in the 75th percentile.

Energy Use (kBtu) – the annual amount of all the energy your property consumes onsite.

Site Energy Use Intensity ( Site EUI) (kBtu/ft2) – The annual amount of all the energy your property consumes on-site, as reported on your utility bills divided by the property square footage.

Water Metrics

Water Use (kGal) – Sum of water usage from all water sources.

Water Use Intensity (gal/ft2) – Water usage from all water sources divided by the building sq. ft. (not including parking or irrigated area).

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Metrics

Total GHG Emissions (Metric Tons CO2e) – Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions are the carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) gases released into the atmosphere as a result of energy consumption at the property. GHG emissions are expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), a universal unit of measure that combines the quantity and global warming potential of each greenhouse gas.

Total Emissions is the sum of Direct Emissions and Indirect Emissions.

  • Direct Emissions – Direct Emissions are emissions associated with onsite fuel combustion (e.g. combustion of natural gas or fuel oil).
  • Indirect Emissions – Indirect Emissions are emissions associated with purchases of electricity, district steam, district hot water, or district chilled water. These emissions occur at your utility’s plant, but they are a result of your property’s energy consumption and therefore contribute to your overall GHG footprint.
