Berkeley Lab releases its FREE energy benchmarking software, EnergyIQ, for all!

Article via +Greentech Media >>

Things that stood out to us...
1) Identifies and prioritizes specific improvements;
2) Imports data directly from Energy Star Portfolio Manager;
3) Offers 62 building types compared to Energy Star's 15;
4) Energy use can be shown in different ways rather than just per square foot, such as per student (for a school) or per seat (for a restaurant); 
5) Allows users to drill down into how, for example, lighting needs might compare to other comparable buildings.
