Buildings Performance Database Dashboard
This section of the site contains charts and graphs that illustrate the amount and type of commercial and residential building data currently contained in the DOE Buildings Performance Database.
The Database is in a prototype phase and is being tested by government and industry experts. The current focus is on soliciting and integrating user feedback and increasing the number of data sources contained within the Database. Over the coming months the DOE Buildings Performance Database will continue to evolve and expand, becoming an even more valuable resource to the energy efficiency and financial communities.
