You’ve heard it before – you can’t manage what you don’t measure. As a result, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is introducing the Energy Star Portfolio Manager to Canadian engineers, contractors and building management personnel.
Developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Portfolio Manager is an online tool used to measure and track energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. It can be used to benchmark the performance of one building or a whole portfolio of buildings, all in a secure online environment.
