ASHRAE's Building Energy Quotient (Building EQ) is highlighted in the latest edition of the ASHRAE Journal (January 2022) and how it is empowering schools and teaching students about energy benchmarking. Click here to view the article online if you are a subscriber.

Carmelsoft developed the ASHRAE BEQ Portal (click here). It provides a quick energy analysis that compares your building to similar buildings within the same climate, helps to identify means to improve a building's energy performance, and provides data on Indoor Environmental Quality.

Both the In Operation and As Designed evaluations (designed by us) are now available in the Building EQ Portal. The As Designed rating compares potential building energy use to the baseline performance of similar buildings using a simulated standardized energy use model.

  1. Based on a building's physical characteristics and systems
  2. Independent of occupancy and operating variables
  3. Allows comparison of potential energy performance between buildings with very different operational and occupancy profiles
  4. Identifies whether a building is achieving the full design potential as compared to actual energy performance as shown in the In Operation rating
  5. Models only the candidate building for consistency between the two ratings
  6. Applicable to both new and existing buildings
