Laboratory Benchmarking Working Group

Lead: Alison Farmer

Laboratory Benchmarking Tool

Group Purpose

The Laboratory Benchmarking Working Group was formed in September 2014 to evaluate the current state of energy benchmarking for labs, and to investigate (then implement) useful enhancements or supplements to the available tools. The group's efforts will focus on projects with strong business use cases which benefit a significant segment of the community of lab owners, consultants, and researchers.

In March 2019, the working group helped launch a new and improved Laboratory Benchmarking Tool to allow lab managers, designers, and users to compared their facilities' energy performance to a national data set of more than 700 labs.
