Sullivan University College of Health and Natural Sciences building, 901 S. Third Street, Louisville, KY 40203
The Louisville Energy Alliance, in partnership with Louisville Metro Government’s Office of Sustainability, will host a complimentary ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager training session on July 23, 2015 at Sullivan University’s College of Health and Natural Sciences building, 901 S. Third Street, Louisville, KY 40203

The training will include a one-hour webinar hosted by ENERGY STAR followed by on-site assistance with entering data into the software. Attendees will learn the basic functionality of Portfolio Manager as well as how to set up an account, log energy and water use data and generate custom reports from the data. Following the webinar, participants will receive on-site assistance as they create Portfolio Manager accounts and enter energy usage data into the software. By the end of the session, attendees will have entered one year of energy data, have a basic understanding of the capabilities of Portfolio Manager and be one step closer towards ENERGY STAR certification.

Registered participants will receive an email detailing what they need to bring to the training. For more information, please contact Andrea Webster at andrea.webster@louisvilleky.gov.

Portfolio Manager is a free, online software that enables building owners and managers to track and evaluate a facility’s energy and water consumption over time. Buildings that perform in the top 25% of their peers, receiving a minimum score of 75/100, are eligible to receive the ENERGY STAR certification.

ENERGY STAR certification shows that a building meets strict energy performance standards set by the EPA. Buildings that are ENERGY STAR certified are seen as top performers in energy-efficiency when compared to other peer buildings. Benefits of gaining ENERGY STAR certification include lower operating costs, higher marketability, fewer greenhouse gas emissions and higher rental rates.

After entering data into Portfolio Manager, buildings owners and managers will become eligible to participate in the Office of Sustainability’s Free ENERGY STAR Certification Program, which allows building owners to receive free verification services from a licensed architect or engineer, building managers and owners must first enter their data into Portfolio Manager.
