Clean Energy Communities Voluntary Benchmarking Software Tool (4478)

Due Date:  12/02/2020  (Round 1)


The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is issuing this solicitation to select a vendor to configure and maintain a Benchmarking Software Tool for an upcoming Clean Energy Communities voluntary benchmarking program. This RFP seeks an “off-the-shelf” software tool that can be configured to meet NYSERDA’s reporting and dashboard display needs. The Benchmarking Software Tool will capture and report on building information and utility data shared to NYSERDA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager® (ESPM) account. The Benchmarking Software Tool will be used to manage building data for various facilities participating in localized Battle of the Buildings campaigns happening across New York State. The tool will be required to import building data from ESPM into the tool daily.

The tool will be required to identify data anomalies in utility data and provide a series of summarized reporting to help NYSERDA measure, track, and analyze utility, greenhouse gas (GHG) and cost performance metrics of participating buildings.
The objective of this RFP is to select a Benchmarking Software Tool to track public and private buildings located in NYS, gaining a deeper understanding of the following:
  • Role and impact of benchmarking buildings NYS.
  • Barriers and solutions to benchmarking buildings across NYS.
  • Energy, sustainability, and budgetary performance of buildings across NYS.
  • Potential improvements to energy efficiency and operational and maintenance practices of buildings across NYS.
  • Impact of the potential public transparency and verification of the energy and sustainability performance of buildings across NYS. 
NYSERDA will hold an informational session to provide an overview of the RFP and address any questions from potential proposers. For more information, please refer to RFP 4478 – Clean Energy Communities Voluntary Benchmarking Software Tool.
