How does your building compare to its peers?
- Look through the database above to see how buildings across Atlanta are performing, including your own.
- Learn more about the different building performance metrics below.
- Check out our Resource Center for resources and tips to improve your building’s performance.
Building Performance 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 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.
