CIET is happy to announce a series of three free webinars to help participants better understand how to use and get the most out of the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager software. ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager (ESPM) is a management tool designed to measure and assess the energy performance of commercial and institutional buildings. After widespread use in the United States, Natural Resources Canada adapted Portfolio Manager for use in Canada where more than 26,000 buildings have been entered into the tool.


Over the years, Portfolio Manager has grown in popularity and use because it allows the user to understand whole building energy use and costs (including water and other materials), compare theirs to similar buildings (using a scoring system), set building baselines and targets, track the impacts of reduction strategies, and produce custom reports.
