Evaluate Greenhouse Gas Emissions Profile for Buildings
To identify the most cost-effective greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction strategies across a Federal agency's building portfolio, a Federal agency will need an understanding of building energy performance and the building characteristics that drive performance.
The data required to support current Federal GHG reporting requirements (e.g., agency-wide fuel consumption, electricity use by zip code) are typically not sufficient to fully understand where the best opportunities for improvement are located. More detailed information about the building assets being managed–much of which may already be collected for other purposes–can help to inform where to direct investments.
This section describes what type of data should be gathered and how it can be analyzed to help establish the programs, building types, and sites that will benefit most from efficiency improvements. Learn more about the:
