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. Vistula Managment's portfolio consists of 16 buildings and 1.38 million square feet. Partner has improved energy performance by 2% from a 2016 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2026. Heritage Village Apartments (41 buildings with 250 units in historic structures), the biggest project was renovated in 2017 with an emphasis on weatherization and solar energy. Madonna Homes (171 units) went through the Mark to Market renovation which included adding a 50KW of photovoltaic array to the 48 Heliodyne hot water collectors already on the roof.

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. Vistula Managment has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at one of its properties. There are nine 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. Vistula Managment's portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 100 to 150 kBtu/sq. ft. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
