WASHINGTON—The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a free webinar on May 23 to show retailers how they can become ENERGY STAR certified under a new program that launches this quarter.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, May 23, at 12:30 pm EDT. It will introduce the new 1-100 ENERGY STAR score developed for convenience stores and outline the process for how stores can use the tool.

EPA’s voluntary ENERY STAR provides Portfolio Manager, a free online tool to set baseline energy use and track facility performance based on utility billing data and other key factors. EPA reports that nearly 25% of U.S. commercial building space is already actively benchmarking in Portfolio Manager, making it the leading benchmarking tool available for commercial real estate.
