Benchmarking 101: Canada
Comparing the energy usage of your building to similar buildings, or "benchmarking," is a simple way to get a rough assessment of building performance. You can also use benchmarking to help set performance targets and monitor progress, and to identify buildings that may need focused effort to reduce energy consumption. Benchmarking is less accurate than an audit, an engineering analysis, or computer modeling of building systems, but it is much less costly and faster.
