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: DOE conducted a second pilot of the Asset Score in 2013 and is in the process of updating the tool to reflect the pilot findings and other feedback. If you wish to access the current version of the tool, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a user account. The tool currently can only produce preliminary reports. We welcome feedback on the tool and Asset Score Report. Please send comments or questions to email@example.com.
Additional information about the Asset Score can be found on the program’s website https://www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/commercial/assetscore.html

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. DOE conducted a second pilot during the summer and fall of 2013, and is in the process of updating the tool and score report outputs to reflect the findings. The 2013 pilot provided DOE with a better understanding of the following:
- Time requirements for collecting and entering data
- 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
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
