CBSA Information for Participants

Find out the basics of the Commercial Building Stock Assessment that is currently underway.

The Commercial Building Stock Assessment (CBSA) is a comprehensive research study of energy efficiency in Northwest commercial buildings. If your company has been contacted about participating in the CBSA, please refer to Frequently Asked Questions, call toll-free (866) 338-6640 or email NEEA at cbsa@neea.org.

The CBSA will provide the region with useful information for businesses (to compare their energy use with the average energy use of similar Northwest facilities), utilities (for use in program planning), researchers (for use in energy use characterization), and be a key input into regional power planning. This is the fourth CBSA study to be conducted in the region since 2001, across Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Washington state. NEEA has hired an energy consulting and research firm (Cadmus) and its subcontractors (McKinstry, Energy 350, and DNV GL) to conduct this research study. These firms are currently asking businesses around the region to participate, by completing the Participation Form linked below.

This study involves gathering information from on-site assessments at participating businesses. Cadmus and its partner firms will collect information on energy-using equipment and building characteristics that affect energy consumption. Site technicians will also report on various energy efficiency opportunities throughout each participating building. Participating businesses will receive either a gift card or a site specific report with results of the CBSA assessment. The value and scope of the report will vary based on size and complexity of participating businesses.
