Case 1 or Case 2?
We'll lay the groundwork by covering how to decide if your project falls under Case 1, using Energy Star Portfolio Manager, or Case 2, using LEED's benchmarking calculator. Do you fall into a grey area? We'll cover how to choose between Case 1 or Case 2. (And then how to choose Case 2A, 2B, or 2C!)

Metering requirements, and more
The webcast will cover key metering requirements, and much more:

  • Managing changes during the Performance Period—operating hours and vacancies
  • Finding and using key Energy Star resources
  • Understanding data management and quality best practices
  • How to manage changes to Energy Start that can suddenly and dramatically affect your scores

Frequently asked questions
In addition to taking your questions during the webinar, Jenny will cover the following frequently asked questions:

  • What if my building is outside the U.S.?
  • What if my building is on a campus and isn’t separately metered?
  • What if my building purchases electricity partially sourced from wind energy?
  • What if my Case 1 building has a random laboratory in it?
  • Where do unusual space types fit in the Case 2 calculator?
  • What do I do if the utility data has been lost or I can’t get information from tenants?
