2. Connect with ENERGY STAR® . . .
Overview: Any building and its meters must be established both in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager and in your Energy Stewards project website. Both databases are tightly integrated so we can draw on the important features of ENERGY STAR. Energy Stewards >> Portfolio Manager: Your participants will find it easy to maintain their energy use data in Energy Stewards. You will need to define the building and its meters in Energy Stewards and the same building and meters in Portfolio Manager. We then link the two on a “read-write” basis. Portfolio Manager >> Energy Stewards: If you are using Portfolio Manager already to track building energy use, a participant can easily share that with RIA_Manager on a “read-only” basis and the data and any future updates will automatically flow to your Energy Stewards project site. Either way, we will help you get started.
