The CBSA is a periodic regional study that provides a database of commercial building information for the Northwest. It’s expected to be representative of the region's existing commercial building stock. The CBSA database includes more than 250 variables for each site, including building type and functional use, building size, detailed information about building envelope, fenestration, lighting, and HVAC equipment. NEEA leads the CBSA project in partnership with stakeholder work groups that provide technical expertise and project guidance on sample design, building data variables, and customer outreach. For more information on participating in the CBSA, read our Fact Sheet (in development) You may also view a webinar discussing 2014 CBSA results.

In 2014, NEEA released the first region-wide study of energy use characteristics of industrial facilities in the Northwest. The region’s utilities and power planning organizations can use these results to identify program opportunities and for energy-use planning. In addition, the region’s industrial concerns will be able to use summary level results to compare themselves with their peers on a wide range of energy use indicators.
Note: due to the relatively small sample size achieved, please use caution interpreting these results. No raw data (anonymized or otherwise) associated with this study will be released publicly.
