Free Energy Use Intensity (EUI) Benchmarking for Cultural Institutions
EUI is one of the key facilty metrics related to both sustainability and cost management. Energy efficient facilities have lower utility costs and a lower carbon footprint.
This requires only two main data items: your energy use (by type for your different types such as electricity, natural gas) and your gross floor area. We will also ask some other classification questions such as type of institution and location for administrative purposes. This report is updated monthly.
