Portfolio Manager & GRITS: Announcing a new initiative to help institutions better track energy efficiency projects
This webinar will highlight the complementary benefits of the U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool and the GRITS platform for tracking building-level and project-level data, respectively.
The Sustainable Endowments Institute, a new ENERGY STAR Partner, is launching an initiative that provides Portfolio Manager users in city/county/state governments, healthcare, higher education, and K-12 schools with access to a free version of GRITS. GRITS is a project-management platform used by nearly 800 institutions to calculate, track, and share the energy, financial, and carbon savings data from their sustainability projects.
With a broad range of users across sectors, both Portfolio Manager and GRITS are leading tools being used by institutions to better manage their energy and carbon data. The webinar will include presentations on both platforms as well as a case study from the State of Vermont as both a Portfolio Manager and GRITS user.
The webinar will feature three presenters:
– Daniel Edson, State Energy Program Manager, Department of Buildings & General Services, State of Vermont
– Brendan Hall, Public Sector Program Manager, ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch
– Mark Orlowski, Executive Director of the Sustainable Endowments Institute, the Boston-based organization that developed GRITS
