Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB)

In the 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan, the government adopted a policy of putting Conservation First before building new energy infrastructure, wherever cost effective. Conservation is the cleanest and most cost-effective energy resource. It also offers households and businesses a way to manage their energy bills and reduces the need to build new energy infrastructure. As a result, the owners of large commercial, multi-unit residential and some industrial buildings greater than or equal to 50,000 square feet (ft2 ) are now required to report their building, energy, water and GHG emission data annually to ENERGY using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager™ (Portfolio Manager).

Energy and water reporting and benchmarking can help building owners:
o Better manage energy and water use and costs
o Identify best practices and energy and water-saving opportunities
o Set and achieve measurable goals
o Evaluate results by comparing to similar facilities across the province
o Measure improvement over time
o Value energy efficient and water efficient buildings
