District Utility Data Tracking

Lloyd EcoDistrict monitors utility data for the district through ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®. This free web-based tool allows building owners to track and analyze their electricity, gas and water use.  By monitoring data through this system, we can see how effectively energy efficiency projects are helping the district reach its energy use reduction goals.   And we know that simply by tracking utility data the usage numbers go down and the energy efficiency measures start to increase. This is the power of working together as a neighborhood.

100% of  our district’s largest commercial buildings (over 50,000SF) have been tracking and sharing their energy data in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®. Each year, thanks to Green Building Services, this data is analyzed into a comprehensive report of our progress.  Our 2017 report shows strong progress and leadership in energy efficiency as a district:

  • Median site EUI for Lloyd is 67 kbtu/ft² compared to Portland’s median of 75 kBtu/ft²
  • GHG emissions have reduced roughly 14 percent despite an increase in energy use in 2017 from the 2010 baseline
  • Median Energy Star Score for Lloyd is 83, whereas the Portland median is 73
