Part of owning commercial buildings is finding ways to drive down energy costs. While a green building is a huge step to lowered costs, there is still much that you can do to integrate both environmental performance and energy management in the maintenance of your green buildings. And the best part is that you don not even have to spend much.

Here are three apps, as recommended by Ms. Ashley Halligan, a Property Management Analyst, to attain that much coveted ENERGY STAR score, air quality analysis, and improved overall energy audit.

Whether you are required by state law to measure your ENERGY STAR performance or simply want to assess where you are in terms of your STAR performance, this app will deliver consumption data by having utility companies hosting a Green Button send it over. The app will then deliver the data to the Environmental Portfolio Manager. This app won 2nd for the “Best Overall App” in the Apps for Energy contest of the US Department of Energy. It’s not hard to understand why.
