Energy & Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB)

What is EWRB:

EWRB is mandated by the Government of Ontario with a long term goal of helping building owners and managers reduce their energy and water needs. Building owners are required to submit all structural and utility information to the Ministry of Energy using the  ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager.

Who and When:

Reporting due date Requirement
July 1, 2018 (for 2017 calendar year) All commercial and industrial buildings with a GFA of 250,000 ft2 or greater
July 1, 2019 (for 2018 calendar year) All multi-residential, commercial and industrial buildings with a GFA of 100,000 ft2 or greater
July 1, 2020 (for 2019 calendar year) All multi-residential, commercial and industrial buildings with a GFA of 50,000 ft2 or greater


Benchmarking with Watershed:

At Watershed, our specialty is reporting and analysis for multi-residential properties! And since you are mandated to provide all the benchmarking information, why not have that information directly benefit you?

When you choose Watershed to do your EWRB benchmarking, aside from meeting the EWRB requirements, you will receive your building’s utility information in a friendly and useful format.

Additionally, since we have your utility information, we will analyze your utility profiles to identify water and energy conservation opportunities within each of your buildings.

Benchmarking your building portfolio with Watershed will allow you to:

  1. Determine which buildings are performing the best and which are under-performing.
  2. See the outcome of any physical or operational changes you make in a building.
  3. Budget better.

All projects we implement are safeguarded by our Performance Protection Plan or our ULTRA service.

Utility Profiles: Analysis and Opportunities

We analyze your water usage to determine savings opportunities as part of the EWRB programs. (Real life case studies show huge potential for savings.)

We identify gas saving opportunities as well as operational issues in your buildings. (Our case studies show how detailed utility monitoring and adjustment using our IDO technology can yield huge savings.)

Turn the EWRB task into a potential treasure for your business!
