Surprising but not uncommon…

Do newer buildings have higher energy usage per square foot than older ones? Benchmarking data collected by FM BENCHMARKING reports some findings that may surprise you. In 2013 (the last full year reported), data showed the median building A 4-10 years old consumed 28.4 kWh per sq. ft., while those 11-20 years old consumed 25.7 kWh per sq. ft. Reported data on buildings 21-50 years old weighed in the middle at 26.5 kWh per sq. ft. why the difference? Many newer buildings aren’t re-commissioned in their early years, and as a result, equipment doesn't remain tuned up as well as it could be.
