This website provides a portal to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) research and development in energy benchmarking for homes, commercial buildings and industrial applications. Benchmarking is useful for property owners, facilities operators, and designers. It facilitates energy accounting, comparing a facility's energy use to similar facilities in order to assess opportunities for improvement, and quantifying/verifying energy savings. LBNL's work includes research on benchmarking techniques, services, and databases as well as the development and evaluation of specific benchmarking tools.
