It is!You can use Portfolio Manager to manage the energy and water use of any building. Seriously. Any building. K-12 school? Check. Office building? Check. Stadium? Check. We could keep going. All you need are your energy bills and some basic information about your building to get started. Join the rest of the industry.When you add your buildings, you’ll be joining 50 percent of U.S. commercial building space that’s already benchmarked in Portfolio Manager — making it the industry-leading benchmarking tool.
