BPS hosts free energy performance reporting information sessions for owners and managers of large commercial buildings

BPS has finalized administrative rules to implement the Commercial Building Energy Performance Reporting Policy. Visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/energyreporting to view the new rules.

The administrative rules provide detailed compliance requirements for commercial buildings over 20,000 square feet to:

  • Track energy use with the ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager web tool, and
  • Report energy performance information annually to the City of Portland.

ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an interactive resource management tool developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that enables tracking and assessment of energy use across an entire portfolio of buildings – all in a secure online environment.

More importantly, it can help implement an energy management program, from setting a baseline to setting goals and tracking improvements. It’s also the tool for getting nationally recognized as an ENERGY STAR certified building by EPA.

Join us in November for a FREE information session to:
