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. DWS's portfolio consists of 25 buildings and over 5 million square feet. Since 2010, DWS has improved energy performance by an average of 3% each year.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. DWS has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at 8 of its properties. There are 15 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. These properties have been targeted for future 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. DWS's portfolio consists of properties with a range of baseline EUI values, most of which are between 100 to 400 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2010. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.

PORTFOLIO WATER PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source water use intensity (WUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Since 2016, DWS has improved water performance by an average of 6% each year, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2030.
