Energy Star Partnership

The University of Chicago is now an ENERGY STAR Partner.

Why partner with ENERGY STAR?

ENERGY STAR® is the internationally recognized standard for the independent monitoring of energy performance.  The University’s partnership with ENERGY STAR supports the existing efforts to reduce utility costs and greenhouse gas emissions with the following benefits

The City of Chicago Energy Benchmarking Ordinance requires all buildings in Chicago greater than 50,000 square feet in size to report annual energy consumption using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.  UChicago benchmarks 110 buildings in accordance with the ordinance.  All resulting energy data is publicly available on the Chicago Energy Benchmarking webpage.
