    The Sustainable Real Estate Manager® (SRM) proprietary Peer Building Benchmarking database facilitates the industry’s most comprehensive “best practice” for benchmarking building energy and sustainability performance. Containing over 120,000 buildings encompassing 15 property types, 3.3 billion square feet, over $7.8 billion in annual energy costs and over $635 million in annual water/sewer costs, the database is aggregated from multiple private sources including portfolio owners and energy service firms. The data is current through May 2011.

    The SRM BEPA workflow “wizard” facilitates the comparison of the subject property’s energy and water key performance indicators (KPIs)* to its peer group’s performance distribution (25th percentile, median, 75th percentile) across multiple geographic areas (nationwide, climate region, state, CBSA and ZIP code). The result is unparalleled visibility to performance benchmarking analytics.

    *KPI benchmarks include energy use intensity (EUI), energy cost per SF and per unit as well as the equivalent breakouts for electricity, fuels and water/sewer use and cost, for a total of 12 KPI benchmarks.
