The Buildings Performance Database (BPD) is the largest free, publicly available database of residential and commercial building energy performance information in the country. The DOE will host a webinar on how the BPD can help you on August 26th from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar will include an overview of the BPD’s goals and design principles, a live demo of the tool, information on how to contribute data, and a question and answer session. It will help you:

*   Analyze information about real buildings’ location; age; size; function; electricity and fuel consumption; equipment information and operational characteristics
*   Discover opportunities for improvement by examining groups of similar buildings
*   Forecast project performance and risk using statistical analysis

With more than 1,500 users since the launch in June, the BPD provides access to an anonymous dataset of over 60,000 single-family, multifamily, commercial and public buildings from across the country. The DOE is continually looking for data contributions, and new datasets are being added regularly.

Target Audience: Building owners and managers, contractors and service providers, public agencies and energy efficiency program administrators
