Core Services

Did you know?  Any building late to comply with DC benchmarking disclosure requirements can be subject to fines up to $100 each day!

It isn’t too late. We can assist you in satisfying these requirements before the deadline and will ensure that your submission is accurate and timely.

DC DDOE Disclosure Compliance

  • Review, organize, and submit all necessary ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager reporting and supplemental documentation requirements for DC DDOE Benchmarking disclosure on behalf of property staff
  • Provide property staff with copies of required documentation related to benchmarking disclosure submission

Benchmarking Services

We work with single or multi-buildings to assist in establishing performance baselines for energy and water usage using the U.S. EPA’s benchmarking tool, ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. The process can sometimes be overwhelming and tedious for property teams. We’re here to make the process easy and painless.

  • Assist property staff in collecting necessary building and utility information needed for accurate benchmarking
  • Create and configure ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager building profiles – including building/space attributes, key operating characteristics, and energy and water meter configuration
  • Input historic monthly energy and water data into the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager account for all applicable meters
  • Perform quality assurance of all inputted utility data to ensure data is complete, accurate, and meets requirements

Training Services

  • Assist property staff in creating personal ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager accounts
  • Provide virtual or in-person training to property staff on how to input monthly energy and water data into the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool in order to keep data up to date and within compliance requirements

A multitude of ways to support small business sustainability

sustainability outreach by grindflow and non-profit company green impact campaign

What was once an idea for a community outreach program, the Green Impact Campaign has since become a movement of it’s own.    The campaign, now a non-profit organization, continues to provide free energy surveys to small businesses across the United States and Canada.  We are proud of what the volunteers of the movement continue to achieve and we continue to support the campaign’s efforts as it continues to grow.

Grindflow Management was founded with a commitment to community and sustainability, and our sustainability services are one of the ways we are able to continue giving to the Green Impact Campaign. Feel confident when working with our sustainability consulting that we are in the business of creating lasting value for your company and our communities.  

Please also considering making a contribution to the Green Impact Campaign as they work to provide free services to promote small business sustainability through the help of young professionals and volunteers working hard to make a difference.
