Energy Asset Scoring Scale
The Energy Asset Scoring Tool converts modeled source EUI into a score, and uses a predefined 10 point interval scoring scale with 0.5-point intervals. The 10 point scale reflects a range of EUIs, where 1 corresponds to a very high EUI and 10 is associated with a very low EUI level. The EUI range varies depending on use type. For different building use types, each additional half-point on the scale corresponds to a different reduction in source EUI. Scoring scales are also divided into multiple sections. Less efficient buildings need to achieve higher energy reductions to obtain additional points.
A score of 10 represents the lowest expected energy usage using current energy efficiency technologies which can be modeled using the Asset Score tool. A score of 8.5 represents a high-efficiency building that uses approximately 30% less energy than a building built to the AHSRAE 90.1-2004 energy code.
