Multi-Sector Survey on Energy Efficiency Tracking Platforms

As inclusion of greater sustainability practices and operational policies to reduce energy use takes root in buildings and campuses across the country, there is a growing need to better track, manage, and share the results that these projects produce. In the brief report, Exploring Energy Efficiency: Multi-Sector Survey on Energy Efficiency Tracking Platforms, SEI examines the impact that such tracking tools have on their users and their overall effectiveness for meeting institutional sustainability goals.

SEI developed this brief report to encourage stakeholders to evaluate their own institution’s needs as well as compare against peers in their own field. By examining the five different sectors of healthcare, higher education, K-12 school systems, municipalities, and corporations, SEI sought to examine the overarching commonalities for organizations appearing to prioritize reducing energy use, reducing operational costs, and more closely aligning with institutional environmental and carbon reduction goals.
