Building Performance Benchmarking

Lloyd EcoDistrict monitors utility data for the district through ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®. This free web-based tool allows building owners and managers to track and analyze their electricity, gas, and water use.


By monitoring data through the ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®, we can see how effectively energy efficiency projects are helping the district reach its energy use reduction goals. 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.

Nearly 100% of our EcoDistrict’s largest commercial buildings (over 50,000SF) have been tracking and sharing their energy data in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®. Each year, thanks to RWDI, this data is analyzed in a comprehensive report of our progress. These reports summarize the utility performance data in Lloyd EcoDistrict, review key findings that were revealed in the data, and identify the next steps in continuing to expand the scope of data analysis within Lloyd EcoDistrict. This view into building performance provides a critical opportunity to evaluate progress toward Lloyd’s short and long-term energy goals. To achieve the “no net increase” target, existing buildings are projected to reduce energy use by 33% over the 25-year period. Our latest report shows strong progress and leadership in energy efficiency as a district. Lloyd buildings are performing better on average than buildings across the city.
