Iowa Public Building Energy Benchmarking
The Iowa Public Benchmarking tool, known as B3, allows public sector facility managers to
enter building size, usage types, utility, and other information into the system and generate
reports to learn how their facilities compare to similar facilities in Iowa and around the country.
The Iowa benchmarking website can be used as a tool to track the results over time and ensure
investments in the building's energy efficiency are reaping the anticipated energy reductions.
Over 2,000 buildings are currently benchmarked using the B3 tool. The tool is sponsored by a
partnership that includes Alliant Energy, MidAmerican Energy, the Iowa Association of
Municipal Utilities, the Iowa Energy Center, and the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
