The experts are in the building.

For over 10 years, we’ve tracked energy use for thousands of buildings & helped many customers meet reporting requirements for corporate sustainability mandates & local benchmarking ordinances.

Going to manage benchmarking compliance with an internal process?

There’s an easier way.

Don’t spend your valuable time tackling these steps!

Using data collected from benchmarking and transparency (B&T) policies, building owners, managers, and operators can identify opportunities to cost-effectively reduce wasted energy and water.

However, the effort and time needed to meet these reporting requirements can be cumbersome when you’re drowning in utility bills and manually entering meter data, especially as a compliance deadline is fast approaching.

We can save you from the impending headaches, whether you’re starting from scratch or streamlining compliance for the future.

ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager is the most common tool used for tracking and communicating energy benchmarking data. As a 6-time ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year, EnergyPrint can seamlessly upload your utility data into the Portfolio Manager, preventing you from having to learn a new system from scratch.

How does EnergyPrint work?

EnergyPrint leads the industry as a full-service data collection and compliance reporting partner. We not only input and deliver data, but also manage the entire collection and validation process to ensure you have quality data when and where you need to use it.

EnergyPrint can get your facility started with 3 easy steps:

  • Building Information – WHERE are we tracking?
  • Utility Bill Copies – WHAT utilities types are we tracking?
  • Your Signed Authorizations – WHO approves us to track?

“We’ve used a variety of providers to do our benchmarking and Chicago energy ordinance submission, and EnergyPrint has been the best at having submissions completed on time without any issues.”

- Larry Puder, Technical Operations Manager

Community Specialists

EnergyPrint makes our energy benchmarking easy. We tried to do it internally and faced challenges like working with our utility providers or manually entering utility data into ENERGY STAR. Now that EnergyPrint handles our compliance, it simplified our process and we don’t have any of the errors or issues we used to spend hours trying to resolve.
