ENERGY STAR can help you learn in a variety of ways. Start with the Web site and the Internet
presentations. Then explore more detailed and personalized training by phone and on site.

ENERGY STAR'S Portfolio Manager helps you select which buildings to target for upgrades,
shows you where your buildings stand nationwide in energy performance, and lets you track
energy consumption over many years, 
ENERGY STAR'S Five-Stage Approach, detailed in the Building Manual, shows how to
maximize cost savings through an integrated upgrade strategy. As part of their strategy, many
colleges sub-meter campus buildings to improve energy management.

ENERGY STAR'S tools can help you incorporate energy performance into all stages of building
development, from pre-design to commissioning.

Although ENERGY STAR does not provide funding, it tells you where to find money for energy
upgrades, using creative and proven techniques while avoiding the capital budget process. The
CFO Calculator, available at www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=business.bus_financing,
quantifies the impacts of various financial and business decisions, including the cost of delay.
ENERGY STAR shows you how to gain the community recognition your efforts deserve; offers
the chance to be featured on the Web, in publications, or in case studies; and helps you become
eligible to earn an ENERGY STAR building label or receive a Partner of the Year Award.

Campus demonstration projects like the ENERGY STAR showcase dorm room can show the
environmental value of saving energy.

ENERGY STAR helps cut your utility bill by assisting in the purchase of ENERGY STAR
qualified products, including computers, printers and exit signs.

ENERGY STAR offers tools such as Monitor Power Management to show your organization
how small changes can uncover significant energy and cost savings.
	
ENERGY STAR materials help build public awareness of cost-saving opportunities that are good
for the environment. Use the online Communications Kit for ideas and templates, as well as
ready-to-distribute Public Service Announcements (PSAs), brochures, posters, and other
outreach materials from national campaigns.
