PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Cleveland Clinic's portfolio consists of more than 60 buildings and 20 million square feet. Since 2010, Cleveland Clinic has improved energy performance by 19%.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all properties can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Cleveland Clinic has achieved energy performance improvement in more than 33 properties, with a 10% or more improvement in 28 properties. Additionally, 7 properties have experienced an increase in Source EUI. Many of these older properties have been targeted for energy audits and potential energy efficiency improvements.

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Cleveland Clinic's portfolio consists of facilities with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are between 200 and 600 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2010. Properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
