ASHRAE has advocated for sustainable technology within the built environment for more than 130 years. One of its many programs is Building Energy Quotient (Building EQ) quick energy analysis.

Building EQ is designed to benchmark a building’s overall energy performance to maximize efficiency and promote environmental health. To complete analysis on each building, the program uses both As Designed and In Operation evaluations. The As Designed evaluation looks at the building’s physical characteristics and systems, while the In Operation assessment looks at actual building energy use. As part of the In Operation evaluation, Building EQ performs a Level 1 Energy Audit to identify low-cost, no-cost, and other energy-efficient measures that can boost the building’s overall energy performance.
