Energy Benchmarking

Part of the Labs21 Tool Kit

Laboratory owners and operators rarely know how their building operating costs compare to similar facilities. Energy benchmarking allows laboratory owners to compare the performance of their laboratory facilities to similar facilities and thereby help identify potential energy cost savings opportunities.

The Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool is a Web-based database tool that contains energy use information from more than 200 laboratory facilities. It allows users to benchmark energy performance in terms of whole-building metrics (e.g., BTU/sf-yr) as well as system-level metrics (e.g., ventilation W/cfm).
