Life Time: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)40%
Annual (2020)26%
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. The Life Time portfolio consists of more than 140 buildings and 15 million square feet. Although Life Time has improved energy performance by 40% from a 2014 baseline, energy consumption during 2020 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 PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Life Time has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at nearly all of its properties, which reflects lower energy consumption during 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding property closures. There are 2 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI during the past year, which may be targets 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. The Life Time portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values. The majority of properties have shown notable energy improvement since 2014, which reflects lower energy consumption during 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding property closures.
