PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Wendium of Florida's portfolio consists of 6 buildings with a total of 18,000 square feet. Wendium has improved energy performance by 21% per transaction from a 2013 baseline, surpassing its Challenge goal ahead of schedule. Wendium improved energy efficiency through parking lot lighting LED upgrades, updating HVAC equipment, installation of energy management systems, and by applying its “Three Green’s Strategy” to prioritize money invested in new equipment such as ENERGY STAR fryers, etc.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Four of Wendium's properties have achieved an energy improvement per transaction of greater than 15 percent. The net improvement for all restaurants exceeds their Challenge goal. 

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. All of Wendium's properties have shown energy improvement since 2013. Wendium continues to monitor and track energy use and make energy conservation a focus for every restaurant.
