Stan Price
Northwest Energy Efficiency Council
(206) 292-5592

Stan Price is a Partner at the Putnam Price Group, a Seattle-based consulting firm specializing in project management, communications, and education and training related to energy efficiency in buildings and industry. His firm provides executive management of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council, a trade association of energy efficiency businesses in the Northwest. Stan has previously served as an Assistant Director of the Washington State Energy Office and held appointments at both Seattle University and Washington State University. He is a former Board member of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, past Chair of the Washington State Building Code Council, and was a member of the Convening Committee for the Energy Trust of Oregon.

Good energy management practices in commercial and institutional facilities starts with the development of an energy accounting and benchmarking scheme. In practical terms, you can't manage what you don't measure. This presentation will focus on the steps facility professionals need to take to develop an energy accounting system and how that information can be used to develop a set of energy performance goals. A component of this best practice is to use this energy data to benchmark the performance of the building. The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager will be discussed as the nationally recognized tool for doing energy benchmarking of buildings. Finally, the presentation will discuss how to evaluate this energy information into a set of energy performance goals that will reduce facility cost, improve productivity, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
