The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Building Energy Asset Scoring Tool (Asset Score) is a web-based software application that is designed to allow building owners, managers, and operators to assess the energy performance of their buildings. This tool is built on EnergyPlus and Facility Energy Decision System (FEDS). EnergyPlus generates the Energy Use Intensity (EUI), which is used to calculate a building's asset score, and analyze the as-built building systems. FEDS provides default or inferred values when a certain variable is not entered by users of the tool. FEDS also runs life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis to provide feedback on areas and options for energy efficiency improvement.
After entering building data into the tool, users can generate an energy asset score report documenting their asset score, building system evaluation, and potential energy savings opportunities.
