Montclair State Participating in ENERGY STAR® HEBI 2.0

Posted in: Sustainability

This summer marks the launch of the second round of the ENERGY STAR® Higher Education Benchmarking Initiative (HEBI).

The HEBI was created in 2020 to spark dialogue and action on efficiency, providing a way for colleges and universities to understand how the energy and water performance of their campus buildings compare to that of peer institutions through free, individualized scorecards. Institutions are encouraged to submit campus-wide energy & water usage data for analysis and benchmarking against peer institutions. The initiative takes into consideration an institution’s enrollment, Carnegie ranking, and other factors so it can group like institutions for comparison. In return for participation, each institution is provided with a scorecard.

The Office of Energy Management already monitors our energy & water usage on campus and we are excited to continue participating in this initiative!

Check out our scorecard from 2019.
