ENERGY STAR Target Finder

Like the DDx, ENERGY STAR Target Finder is a tool to set baselines and targets. As of August 2018, baselines used in ENERGY STAR Target Finder were updated to CBECS 2012. Zero Tool uses a very similar methodology to Target Finder but with the CBECS 2003 baseline consistent with 2030 Challenge and AIA 2030 Commitment and is now the recommended approach to setting a baseline pEUI for projects.

 

AIA still recommends referencing ENERGY STAR Target Finder for projects interested in eligibility for Designed to Earn the Energy Star Certification and as another method to understand how your projects predicted performance is benchmarked against the existing building stock.
