Benchmarking Application

Whole building benchmarking and aggregated data in one easy-to-use tool.

benchmarking compliance, fast and simple.

Today, the building sector accounts for around 40% of total U.S. energy usage.*  To reduce emissions, you need to measure energy, especially when it comes to multi-tenant buildings. That’s why whole building benchmarking, and the legislation around it, is here to stay.

Calico’s whole building Benchmarking Application helps utilities respond to customer data requests in one easy-to-use application. Furthermore, it gives building owners and operators a way to manage multi-tenant buildings and energy usage data. This paves the way for useful insights that increase energy efficiency and optimize operations.

What our Benchmarking Application can do for Utilities:

  • Provides automated access to multi-tenant facility energy usage data for building owner customers, while protecting confidential data

  • Automatically connects with the ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager® to perform whole building benchmarking and generate reports

What Our Benchmarking Application can do for building owners:

  • Categorizes, analyzes, manages and submits aggregated building usage data directly to the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®

  • Identifies and quantifies the impact of energy efficiency projects and building retrofits

  • Tax benefits and potential utility incentives for ENERGY STAR certification 

What is Building Benchmarking...
and why does it matter?

In territories across the nation, legislative bodies are releasing new benchmarking requirements. It’s no longer just first adopters rolling out these mandates — benchmarking is here to stay. As as result, the challenges to utilities and building owners can be immediate. Utilities need a simple way to deliver usage data to their customers. Likewise, building owners and operators need a single, easy-to-use application to acquire that data, whether it’s electric, gas or water.

Today, benchmarking involves manual requests and labor-intensive collection processes, particularly in the case of multi-tenant facilities. But we believe there’s a more efficient way. With a single solution like Calico’s whole building Benchmarking Application, electric, gas and water utilities can deliver simplicity for customers. And for utilities, the application ensures ease of implementation and ongoing maintenance.
