ASHRAE's Building Energy Quotient (Building EQ)
Go beyond benchmarking with ASHRAE's Building Energy Quotient! Building EQ provides in-depth energy analysis to benchmark energy performance, actionable energy efficiency measures, and information on a building’s Indoor Environmental Quality. This program empowers building and campus owners on how their buildings contribute to their energy resilience and conservation plan.
