101: Fundamentals & Basics (this webinar)

201: Creating and Updating your Building Profile

301: Maximize Usage with Advanced Features

The 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.​
During this first of three virtual workshops, participants are exposed to the basic functionalities of Portfolio Manager and learn to navigate it. Moreover, the instructor presents an overview of how to enter building data into the tool.
