The Department of Energy Building Energy Asset Score (Asset Score) is a national standardized tool for evaluating
the physical and structural energy efficiency of commercial and multifamily residential buildings. The scoring
tool will store user-provided data and generate an asset score and system evaluation for your building envelope
and mechanical and electrical systems. The tool will also identify cost-effective upgrade opportunities and help
you gain insight into the energy efficiency potential of your building.
Follow the steps below to get started:
Collect Building Data: Use the Data Collection Form – either
“Preview” or “Full” Input Mode versions
(Short Form or
Long Form) – to gather information
about your building’s physical characteristics. Review the Data Collection
Priority Map to help focus on the most
important building data given your building’s use type and climate zone.
Enter Data: Register for an account, log in, create a building, and input the building data you
Receive an Asset Score Report: Select the "Score Building" button to generate a
