The REALpac Energy & Water Normalization Database
(the "Database”) has now been redesigned to include both energy and water use data inputs and will be the online portal for both the 2016 Energy Benchmarking Survey and the 2016 Water Benchmarking Survey.
The 2016 Water Benchmarking Survey now includes the data collection and calculation of both actual water use metrics and normalized water use metrics.
Participants are strongly encouraged to review the REALpac Energy Database Input Guidelines, which can be downloaded from within the Energy & Water Database Input Guidelines
section of the website, before starting to enter building energy use data into the Database. If users do not review and understand the Guidelines requirements and enter erroneous or ineligible data for their buildings, the buildings may not be accepted/approved into the Survey, plus they may be at risk of disqualification from potential awards or recognition activities and/or removal from the Database. It is the responsibility of the user to follow the Guidelines and other Energy Benchmarking Program documents as well as double check their individual building data within the Database building from being accepted/approved into the Survey.
Once users have completed collection of building energy use data, following the Guidelines, the data can then be entered into the Database. After data has been entered for each individual building, it is the responsibility of users/participants to review data for accuracy and completeness. Data can be entered, edited, and/or corrected while the Survey is open. After the submission deadline, not further edits or changes can be made, unless requested or coordinated with REALpac.
To participate in the Survey and begin entering building energy use data, go to the
and register as a new user or login if previously registered.
