Save Energy

Energy Scores and Energy Use Intensity (EUI)

The 2011/2012 energy benchmarking report released by the Seattle Office of Sustainability and Environment revealed that Seattle building owners are poised to save tens of millions of dollars on energy annually by improving their building's energy efficiency. Read the news on our blog.

To help Seattle owners compare their building's energy use to their peers, energy performance ranges based on EUI (energy use per square foot annually) for 13 different building types based on their 2012 reported energy use were established.

See how your building stacks up!

First, benchmark to find out the building's energy use per square foot (EUI) and/and or ENERGY STAR score. Then use the infographic and energy performance tables to compare.
