The system provides advance benchmarking reports and search criteria. Now you can see how many customers have what scores and track their carbon greenhouse gas emissions. The system has its own database. This is the first ever advanced system to put ENERGY STAR Benchmarking within reach of many utilities ESP's / municipalities, state and local governments.
