Energy performance (benchmarks) for the 2021 calendar year must be updated in Portfolio Manager by July 1, 2022 for all multifamily and non-residential buildings 20,000 SF or larger.
To be in compliance, your building’s Portfolio Manager account must be:
- Updated with current space use details and accurate energy meter data. If you have default data values assigned by the EPA you will need to correct them.
- Updated with current contact information.
- Able to generate a 2021 December ending Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and ENERGY STAR® score (if available), and
- Successfully shared with the City of Seattle Annual Reporting Portfolio Manager account.
Once you have completed all the required steps to make annual updates and share your 2021 benchmark report, you can check your building’s compliance status on the Seattle Benchmarking Compliance Portal.
