Clark County's portfolio consists of more than 110 buildings and almost 4 million square feet. Since 2009, Clark County has improved energy performance by 5 percent.

Energy Performance by Facility

Clark County has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 6% at more than 40 of its facilities. There are 31 facilities that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. These facilities have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.

Identifying Opportunities for Improvement

Facility-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunties for additional energy savings. Clark County's portfolio consists of facilities with with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 40 to 400 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of facilities have shown energy improvement since 2009. The facilities located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
