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. Margate's portfolio consists of 14 buildings and 120 thousand square feet. *Margate has improved energy performance by 29% from a 2011 baseline. 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 were achieved during COVID-19 by implementing lighting retrofits and HVAC upgrades.
