There’s a new free mobile app for iPhone. The app, now available for iPhone and Android devices, allows real estate professionals to view and analyze Energy Star scores from their smartphones. The app enables user to compares Energy Star scores for over one billion square feet of property nationwide.
“The CodeGreen Energy App is just the kind of tool we have been waiting for. It makes finding and comparing Energy Star Scores of thousands of buildings so quick and easy. Making this data transparent is a dream come true for the Energy Efficiency Marketplace,” said Robert Sauchelli, national program manager, Energy Star Service and Product Provider Partnership.
New Energy Star disclosure requirements in cities such as New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Austin and Washington DC have increased the importance of having higher scores. The CodeGreen tool enables users to easily search and compare the energy scores of thousands of buildings throughout the country. CodeGreen is an EPA Energy Star Partner and has reviewed the energy use of over 150 million square feet of buildings throughout the country.
This unique and large data set enabled CodeGreen to develop proprietary algorithms to better compare the energy use of similar buildings. Now for the first time, a building owner or tenant can use a mobile app to easily find and compare the energy efficiency of their own building with any nearby or similar buildings, condensing and normalizing many building characteristics into a single performance score.
In addition to helping owners and tenants give their Energy Star scores context by adjusting comparison groups by size, age, and building types, the CodeGreen Energy App offers other useful features that will allow users to see whether or not their building is compliant with new energy efficiency laws, send updates on their building’s energy efficiency for verification, and to understand new energy efficiency laws and see when their buildings are due to comply.
