Benchmarking: Your Game Plan for What’s New in ’22 and Beyond
If you’re a sports fan, you understand the need for rules and regulations governing the game. It takes teamwork and a talented bench to execute the plays effectively to be a contender. It’s the same mindset when it comes to benchmarking.
There are similarities between markets for your properties and buildings regarding benchmarking and compliance. Over the past 15 years, benchmarking mandates and ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® have changed — from data collection, scoring models, comparative metrics, to achieving certification. Many markets are no longer a ‘check the box’ you’re done process — you train year-round just like in sports.
In this webcast, RealPage’s, Mary Nitschke, VP of Sustainability and Carol Schmitt, Chief Evangelist for Smart Energy, and special guests will review the fundamentals of the game that include:
- What’s new in 2022
- What to expect for the changing compliance and reporting mandates
- Identifying the stats that mean the most
- What benchmarking can uncover for you
- And more
Our goal is to help you put in play mathematically proven winning strategies for your benchmarking and compliance playbook. Register for this webcast to learn how to achieve a winning score against the latest mandates and new penalties.
