The famous British physicist and scientist William Thomson Kelvin has been quoted as saying, ”What is not defined cannot be measured. What is not measured, cannot be improved. What is not improved, is always degraded.” Corporations and institutions need to define their goals, then convert them into measurable metrics to monitor and track the performance of their facilities.
This presentation will focus on the importance of establishing baselines with respect to facilities’ energy demand and consumption using energy use intensity (EUI) and related energy performance indicators (EnPI), and then utilize benchmarking tools for comparison against peer facilities.
In addition, we will discuss related metrics important to energy and facility managers associated with related sustainability and operational goals, including water and waste tracking, facility condition index and asset maintenance, indoor environmental quality, and greenhouse gas emissions (carbon footprint).
