Self-benchmarking Guide (Labs)


This guide describes energy efficiency metrics and benchmarks that can be used to track the performance of and identify potential opportunities to reduce energy use in laboratory buildings. It is primarily intended for personnel who have responsibility for managing energy use in existing laboratory facilities — including facilities managers, energy managers, and their engineering consultants. Additionally, laboratory planners and designers may also use the metrics and benchmarks described in this guide for goal-setting in new construction or major renovation.
