In late August 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency made significant changes in its Energy Star Portfolio Manager tool. The biggest impact for most facilities is that their updated scores are likely to be lower than in the past, even though the buildings are using no more energy than before.

But there's no need to go into score shock. Take a moment to understand the reason for the update and steps you can take to get your facility back among the stars.

For most commercial building types, the 1-100 Energy Star score is based on the Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS), conducted by the Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA).
