I2SL's High-Tech Talks Webinar Series Presents:

The Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool

June 2, 2011
3 p.m. – 4 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time)

I2SL presented the first webinar in its new series: I2SL's High-Tech Talks. This webinar examined the Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool, an instrument that allows users to benchmark energy performance in terms of whole-building metrics (e.g., British thermal units per square foot per year) as well as system-level metrics (e.g., minimum ventilation rate in cubic feet of air per minute). This Web-based database tool contains energy use information from more than 200 laboratory facilities.

This webinar helped participants:

  • Compare the performance of their laboratory facilities to similar facilities.
  • Understand the objectives and benefits of energy benchmarking.
  • Help identify potential energy cost savings opportunities.
  • Learn how to use the Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool, and how to use benchmarking results to guide and inform energy efficiency implementation.
  • Learn how to use the Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool for LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance documentation.

The first 45 minutes of this hour-long webinar were instruction on the Labs21 Energy Benchmarking Tool. During the last 15 minutes, the webinar instructor answered questions from the audience.
