Philadelphia Building Energy Benchmarking Program
The visualization tool provides building-level energy performance data for the last three calendar years for the nearly 2,800 buildings required to report utility information as part of Philadelphia’s energy benchmarking law. The chart and map tools are interactive and allow visualizing building energy performance comparisons throughout the city.

- 2375+ Buildings Reported
- 74.3% Compliance Rate
- 61 Median Energy Star Score
In 2019, the Office of Sustainability and Green Building United released a report analyzing the performance of benchmarked properties over the lifetime of the program and provided summary statistics on 2018 energy and water use data. The results show that, since 2013, Philadelphia’s benchmarked buildings have demonstrated a 5% reduction in overall energy use and over half of all buildings reported every year have achieved energy savings.
- 320+ Million Square Feet Reported
