Know Your Building. Know Your Power.

Introducing Building IQ, a City of Aspen initiative to help commercial and multi-family buildings save energy and water in a community-wide effort to keep our city, and our planet, healthy and thriving.

Through energy and water benchmarking and improvements, building owners will increase profitability, tenants will see lower utility bills, and the City will make more informed, data-driven decisions.

Want to Start Benchmarking?

Benchmarking your building’s energy and water use is a great way to identify potential efficiency improvements, lower your utility bills, and compare your building’s usage to other buildings of similar size and use-type. This process can be made easier by using Portfolio Manager, a free, user-friendly platform provided by the EPA to help building owners track their building’s energy and water usage.

    Aspen’s elected officials have taken the first steps to what will eventually lead to mandating building owners to track and reduce their energy use.

    The city’s new initiative, called “Building IQ,” is an effort to get Aspen to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by next year, and 80% by 2050.

    Commercial and residential buildings in Aspen account for 58% of greenhouse gas emissions, which is why the city is focusing on them as a way to significantly reduce its carbon footprint.
