City of Fort Collins: Benchmarking Transparency Map

Apr 9, 2021 | Member News

The Building Energy and Water Scoring program (Ordinance 2018-144) requires transparency of energy and water efficiency of commercial and multifamily buildings 5,000 square feet and above.  Comparing the energy and water performance of one building against another in the same sector allows commercial real estate stakeholders such as building owners, operators, and tenants, to evaluate the highest-performing, lowest-operating cost option, and to monitor their performance in the market place.


  • Improve your building’s net operating income (NOI)
  • Identify and prioritize future building improvements
  • Advertise your building’s performance and differentiate yourself in the marketplace
  • Retain tenants and improve occupancy

Each year, owners of covered buildings are required to benchmark energy and water use, and report to the City using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
