Commercial Building Energy Asset Scoring Tool
The Commercial Building Energy Asset Score is a national standard for a voluntary energy rating system evaluating the physical characteristics of your building as built and its overall energy efficiency independent of occupancy and operational choices.
This Asset Scoring Tool will guide your data collection, store your building information, and generate an Asset Score and system evaluations for your building envelope and mechanical and electrical systems. The Asset Scoring Tool will also identify cost-effective upgrade opportunities and help you gain insight into the energy efficiency potential of your building.
Please note: The Commercial Building Energy Asset Score program is in the pilot stage, and only Pilot Participants are granted access to the Asset Scoring Tool at this time. To become a Pilot Participant, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with “Interested Pilot” in the subject line.
2013 Pilot Information
DOE conducted its first pilot test of the Asset Score in 2012. Findings from that pilot have led to improvements in the overall program and the Asset Scoring Tool. The 2013 Pilot will run from July 1 through September 30, 2013, and will provide DOE with a better understanding of the following:
- Time requirements for collecting and entering data, both for simple and advanced Asset Scores
- How energy use intensity (EUI) estimates of a wide range of buildings and building types vary across climates
- Usability of the Asset Scoring Tool
- Usefulness of the Asset Score Report, including the score itself, the recommendations for improvements, and the ratings for different building components
Pilot Participants will be provided with access to the enhanced Asset Scoring Tool. Login instructions for accessing the tool will be sent directly via email.
As a 2013 Pilot Participant you will receive an Asset Score Report which will include a list of cost-effective energy recommendations for each building you enter. For those who have submitted their buildings for scoring, Asset Score Reports for Single Use Type buildings will be available August 19th. Reports for mixed-use buildings will be made available the first week of September. Users will receive a notification email as soon as their reports are ready for review and download. We apologize for the delay.
A DOE Account Manager will provide you with support and obtain your valuable feedback throughout the Pilot. You will also receive technical support from national laboratories throughout the process. The following documents are available to help you understand the process of using the Asset Scoring Tool to generate an Asset Score:
- Data Collection Form
- Asset Score Data Collection Priority Map
- Quick Start Guide
- Example Asset Score Report
- Asset Score Report Guide
- Asset Score Building Upgrade Guide
- Operational and Equipment Sizing Assumptions
- Video Demo of the Energy Asset Scoring Tool
