Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)9%
Annual (2018)4%

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. Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation's (Codman Square NDC) portfolio consists of more than 80 properties and 1 million square feet. Codman Square NDC has improved energy performance by 9% from a 2015 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2026.  


Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all properties can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Codman Square NDC has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at more than 24 of its properties. There are 21 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.


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. Codman Square NDC's portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 50 to 200 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2015. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
