REALpac Releases 2010 Energy Benchmarking Report

TORONTO - The Real Property Association of Canada released the REALpac 2010 Energy Benchmarking Report: Performance of the Canadian Office Sector was released which contains the results of the first annual REALpac Energy Benchmarking Survey.

The Survey is intended to establish a baseline of building energy use in Canada and to begin to grow a database that has a foundation of accurate and robust data, collected through the use of credible and equitable assumptions and a replicable methodology.

The 2010 Survey received a high level of interest and participation with a total of 261 office buildings having submitted data for the calendar year 2009. Buildings that participated in the survey include both large and small office buildings, counting a mix of government and commercial owners, and represent over 101 million square feet of gross floor area.

The Canada-wide data set of annual building energy intensity shows the mean actual energy use intensity to be 33.0 ekWh/ft2/yr and the mean normalized energy use intensity to be 28.7 ekWh/ft2/yr. There are 65 buildings in total with energy use performance within the top quartile, which is below 23.7 ekWh/ft2/yr. City center trends are also described in the report with the Greater Toronto Area data set having a mean normalized energy use intensity of 27.6 ekWh/ft2/yr, the Calgary data set having a mean normalized energy use intensity of 32.6 ekWh/ft2/yr, and the Greater Vancouver Regional District having a mean normalized energy use intensity of 32.9 ekWh/ft2/yr.
