Platform Features

Project Management

Supports spread and documentation of effective energy management practices across a portfolio of buildings. At a glance, managers can see: Which buildings are improving the most; Progress on Action Checklist; ENERGY STAR® rating; Last utility data update; Energy change from baseline. Drill down to Building Home Page to learn more.

Align Action

The Action Table customized to guide and monitor energy saving action across all buildings in a project group. Set milestones, practices and actions that you want all to test or adopt in their own buildings. See who is active, and who is not. Action Table is also linked to Forums, to share learning. Invite Team Members quickly engages key players.


The platform offers an automatic data link service with ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager, providing an easy-to-use connection to the leading building benchmark and the rich array of valuable ENERGY STAR information. You see how a particular building energy use ranks against similar buildings nationwide, how the rating has changed over time to inspire ongoing energy management improvement.

See Results

When an Action Item is checked, it is noted on the Energy Chart and Building Home Page. Specific actions can be linked to their related charts. (Water use actions appear on water charts, for example.) This makes reporting simple, and highlights what actions have been most helpful in reducing financial and environmental costs.

Share Learning

Energy Stewards is a tool that is deployed in the context of a range of resources centered around improving resource use and reducing both financial and environmental costs. It can help scale a good pilot program to involve many. At the heart of the Energy Stewards philosophy is sharing learning among those involved. Those who have been out ahead can speed the path for others who follow.

Our Project Partners

Our partners are companies, non-profit, units of government that seek to spread energy improvement more broadly and deeply among a portfolio of buildings, quickening a reduction in financial and environmental costs. They typically are ready to ramp-up a pilot program so it can be run more efficiently and effectively, engaging many more. They have a range of services and partners that can be brought together more fully and transparently to achieve their goals. We work with our partners only if they meet certain necessary conditions. As we start, we help firm their unique Action Table and program elements, set key milestones, launch dates and program reviews. We train local project leaders to administer the site. Throughout, we support with our deep experience with energy improvement and organizational change issues. Among those using the Energy Stewards platform today:

Energy Stewards Background

Kevin Little and Warren Gaskill of Rapid Improvement Associates, LLC developed the Energy Stewards web platform starting in 2005.  The observation that “any building can teach, as long as you pay attention” guided their work.

From this core observation, Energy Stewards aimed to help customers in two ways: 1) Make it simple for average building users to pay attention to the financial and environmental costs of heating and cooling a building. And 2) To make it easy to take action to improve building energy use performance, learning from peers, and key action steps.

Little and Gaskill’s consulting background has been in the quality improvement field, which informed their design choices for Energy Stewards. The basic QI tenets–tracking key measures over time, adopting practices to one’s unique conditions, testing a change on a small scale to see what leads to improvement and what doesn’t, and peer learning– are all part of the framework of Energy Stewards.

In 2021, Little and Gaskill are very pleased to have Energility, LLC help carry this platform and work forward.
