The webinar will provide an overview of the Sustainable Jersey action, “Energy Benchmarking and Management,” (formerly known as Energy Star Portfolio Manager) and will show you what you’ll need to successfully track your energy use. Other benchmarking options, including free benchmarking from TRC, as well as other energy tracking software that are compatible with ESPM will be discussed.
