ASHRAEhas launched a program designed to report a building’s energy use to owners, operators, tenants, and prospective buyers, according to a press release. The goal of the Building Energy Quotient program is to encourage stakeholders to lower their energy use.

The program, which will be known as Building EQ, “will include both As Designed (asset) and In Operation (as operated) ratings for all building types, except residential. It also will provide a detailed certificate with data on actual energy use, energy demand profiles, indoor air quality and other information that will enable building owners to evaluate and reduce their building’s energy use,” according to the release.
