Software for Energy-Efficiency, Water Conservation and Indoor Air Quality Audits:

Alliance to Save Energy’s Business Energy Checkup:

This is an online interactive guide to saving money and preventing pollution through energy efficiency
steps you can take in your business. Business Energy Checkup helps you identify a wide range of energy
efficiency options for your building.

EPA’s Energy Star Buildings’ benchmarking software, Portfolio Manager:

Portfolio Manager is EPA's on-line tool for developing, tracking, and evaluating an organization's
approach to reducing energy costs over time. For certain building types (see Registry of Labeled
Buildings), Portfolio Manager offers the ability to benchmark energy performance on a 1-to-100 scale.
For all buildings, portfolio manager allows energy consumption, costs, and associated emissions to be
tracked over time. Portfolio manager can assist you in making the best possible upgrade decisions for
your portfolio. Use it to identify and reward exemplary performers and find the best investment

EPA’s WAVE, the Water Alliance for Voluntary Efficiency:

WAVE is a voluntary, non-regulatory partnership program between the EPA and hotels and motels.
WAVE's mission is to encourage businesses and institutions to reduce water use while increasing
efficiency and profitability. Government agencies are eligible to join WAVE as sponsors. WSAP
identifies water and energy savings for water consuming devices found in hotels and motels. Since these
items would include toilets, faucets, laundry and kitchen water-consuming devices, the Water Systems
program could be useful for federal office, residential and laundry facilities as well.


I-BEAM is a computer software for use by building professionals and others interested in indoor air
quality in commercial buildings. I-BEAM updates and expands EPA's Building Air Quality (600) and is
designed to be comprehensive state-of-the-art guidance for managing IAQ in commercial buildings.
I-BEAM components that can be used to perform several tasks including: conducting an indoor air quality
(IAQ) building audit; diagnosing and resolving IAQ related health problems; establishing an IAQ
management and maintenance program to reduce IAQ risks; planning IAQ compatible energy projects;
protecting occupants from exposures to construction/renovation contaminants; and calculating the cost,
revenue, and productivity impacts of planned IAQ activities.”

EZ Save Energy Star Power Management Program Suite:

The EZ Save Energy Star Power Management Program Suite provides a range of programs to help you
determine the state of Energy Star usage within your workplace, estimate the potential savings that can
be achieved, and then activate the Energy Star  features on user workstations to achieve those savings.
