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 2016 report shows strong progress and leadership in energy efficiency as a district:

  • Energy use in the district has been reduced by 12.4% since 2010.
  • Median site EUI for Lloyd is 58.9 kbtu/ft2 compared to Portland’s median of 64.5 kBtu/ft2
  • GHG emissions have declined by 21.4% since 2010 for buildings that have a full set of energy data
  • Median Energy Star Score for Lloyd is 85, whereas the Portland median is 72
