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 Asset Score Data Collection Form – either “lite” or “full” version – to gather information about your building’s physical characteristics. Review the Asset Score 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 have collected.
Receive an Asset Score Report: Select the "Score Building" button to generate the report that includes your Asset Score, building system evaluation, and potential energy savings upgrade opportunities.
03/16/15 - Parking Garage building use type: We are in the process of reviewing the scoring calculations for the Parking Garage (Heated/Cooled) building use type. Presently, buildings scored with the Parking Garage use type selected may have low scores if the block has a heating or cooling system. Future Asset Score revisions will include use type options for both Parking Garage (Ventilation Only), and Parking Garage (Heated/Cooled).
