Beyond EUI: Linking Energy and Economy in Buildings :: GBIG Insight

” Despite all of the benefits that EUI transparency is bringing, this metric doesn’t go quite far enough in allowing us to compare the relative efficiency of buildings, particularly in comparison to one another. Instead, it measures the relative intensity of energy consumption in a building – kBtu/SF, a metric most useful for comparing a single building’s energy performance over time. ” —Baumgardner
