Kilroy Realty Corporation: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Equivalent Cumulative % Improvement12%
Average Annual % Improvement2.8%

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. Kilroy Realty's portfolio consists of more than 90 buildings and 14 million square feet. Since 2016, Kilroy has improved energy performance by an average of 2.8% each year resulting in a cumulative equivalent of 12% improvement. Energy consumption during 2020 and 2021 was significantly lower than a typical year since COVID-19 disruptions resulted in temporary building closures and reduced occupancy for much of the year. Energy savings have been achieved through deep engagement with engineering, a dedicated capital budget for funding efficiency projects such as lighting retrofits and HVAC upgrades, the Kilroy Innovation Lab, and collaborating with tenants on energy reductions.
