Finally!

I am tied up doing my budget for FY 2016, but had to take a moment to post this link from DOE that discusses energy baselining and tracking.  AT LAST, a guide from the Feds that goes beyond the per-square-foot method of trying to assess performance.  This should really be a motivator for people to rethink how they measure and monitor energy utilization.  At least people who think instead of just doing what they are told.  And indeed, this could actually be a useful approach for organizations that want to effectively and (pretty) accurately assess and manage energy use.  Worth a perusal if nothing else.  The link is here:

If there’s any justice in the world, this will be the first nail in the coffin of EPA’s Portfolio Manager…

Enjoy!
