How do I find an qualified energy auditor for my facility?

Two organizations have developed widely recognized certification programs for building energy auditors.

The Association of Energy Engineer's Certified Professionals Directory lists over 1,200 individuals in different regions of the U.S. who have attained a Certified Energy Auditor status.

ASHRAE has a Building Energy Assessment Professional (BEAP) certification program. Search their professional directory and you can find more than 160 U.S. industry professionals in different states who have achieved BEAP certification.

A number of resources are available to help you assess the energy performance of your facility. ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager™ is a no-cost benchmarking tool that can help you compare your building's energy performance to similar facilities and track that performance over time. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Energy Asset Score is a standardized tool for assessing the energy efficiency of commercial buildings.

By using these resources, you'll be better prepared to make the most of a professional energy audit.
