Provide Your Input on Access to Whole-Building Energy Use Data

EPA is seeking input from building owners and managers, companies that provide support for benchmarking, and others to learn more about whole-building energy data needs. Complete this 10-minute form which will ask you to identify priority utilities where this data is needed most and share the importance of obtaining this information for your organization. Please provide your input by June 7, 2024.

About the Campaign

While more and more utilities are making whole-building energy use data available to owners, over 90 percent of U.S. utilities do not provide this service. The lack of whole-building energy data frequently prevents owners of building types where tenants are responsible for at least some energy bills, particularly multifamily buildings, from gaining a full understanding of their buildings and taking steps to make them more energy efficient. The whole-building energy data campaign aims to address this problem by supporting building owners in making the case to utility companies for the importance of data access.

Knowing energy usage is essential for building owners to understand, document, and improve their building’s performance, as well as access new incentives. View EPA’s utility data access map showing utilities that currently provide this data.
