    (FREE with advance registration)
    — THURSDAY, June 4, 2015 / 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
    Come to this workshop to learn how to use this free-to-use tool. You'll see a live demonstration of the benchmarking and reporting process, and get all of your questions answered by experienced ENERGY STAR trainers from the U.S. EPA. Federal agencies and state and local governments across the country - including both the State of Washington and the City of Seattle - are taking bold steps to protect the environment and lower energy costs through both required policy measures and voluntary campaigns. Recent legislation and voluntary initiatives have mandated the public disclosure of commercial building energy use in several states and localities-including California, Washington state, San Francisco, Seattle, New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Boston, Cambridge, and Washington, D.C. These entities are turning to EPA's ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager as the preferred tool for disclosure.
