By utilizing ENERGY STAR tools and resources, governments can significantly lower energy costs, thus freeing up resources that can be reinvested back in the local community. Numerous policies and voluntary programs are emerging across the country that leverage ENERGY STAR. For instance, energy disclosure laws that mandate energy benchmarking for commercial buildings often require governments to track energy usage first, before the law expands to cover other commercial buildings. The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool is an easy to use, comprehensive tool that is used to assess compliance with most existing mandates.
