Benchmarking Jam
Presented in partnership with the Green Dining Alliance


The USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter and the Green Dining Alliance present a Benchmarking Jam for restaurants, food sales, and food service buildings. Resources specific to these building types will be shared, however buildings of all types are welcome to attend.

Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy your building consumes, and comparing your energy performance to similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward saving energy and money!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online, interactive energy management tool that allows you to measure and track your building’s energy, water, and waste data, identify investment priorities, and verify improvements over time.

Get hands-on assistance using the free, online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool at the upcoming Benchmarking Jam!

In order for this event to be a success, each building representative should bring:
  • Laptop or Tablet
  • The building street address, year built, and contact information.
  • Gross Floor Area (square feet)
  • Energy Use Data
    • Attendees will need at least 12 consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building. Bring the number of units of each energy type used, not just the dollar amount of the utility fee.
    • Historical energy use data can be downloaded on the Ameren Missouri website, and requested from Laclede Gas's customer service team.
    • Water and Waste can also be tracked in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Interested building owners should collect 12 months of water usage and cost data and 12 months of waste production (volume or weight of waste in all waste streams) and cost data.
  • Property Use Details: Additional required information varies by building type. See the list below.
