PNC Financial Services Group: Energy performance

Cumulative (vs. Baseline)6%

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. PNC's portfolio consists of more than 2,200 buildings and 24 million square feet. Since 2012, PNC has improved energy performance by 6%. Energy savings have been achieved by implementing lighting retrofits, HVAC upgrades, and an energy awareness program focused on operational and low-cost opportunities for savings.


Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all properties can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. PNC has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at more than 500 of its properties. There are 1,200 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. PNC's portfolio consists of properties with with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 50 to 500 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2012. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
