Energy Performance Reporting Policy for Commercial Buildings

  • Energy reporting begins 2017 for commercial buildings over 20,000 square feet

  • Commercial buildings over 50,000 square feet began reporting in 2016

To reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, Portland City Council passed a policy in 2015 that requires commercial buildings 20,000 square feet and over to:

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


Contact the Energy Reporting Help Desk: 503-823-7070,

Attend a FREE hands-on ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager workshop on April 11 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. to help you comply. Please register here by March 27.

Drop-in “office-hours “sessions are also scheduled on April 11 and 18 from 1–3 p.m. No registration necessary – just bring your Portfolio Manager username and password.
