Breaking News: Potential shutdown of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager

BOMA Canada has just learned from NRCan that there is a possibility that ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager may be shut down as early as Friday January 19, 2018, at midnight, due to the expiry of a U.S. government budget deadline and possible U.S. government shutdown.

If there is a U.S. government partial shutdown, out of caution related to ensuring the security of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, the tool would remain inaccessible to everyone (U.S. and Canadian users) until such time as the U.S. government has a budget in place and departments impacted by the shutdown are back to work. We encourage you to print/download anything that you might need from your Portfolio Manager accounts that is pertinent to your BOMA BEST certification while the tool is offline.

Anyone trying to access the tool during the shutdown would see the following message:

ENERGY STAR Website and Tools are Unavailable

The U.S. federal government is closed due to a lapse in appropriations. For the duration of the U.S. government shutdown, all ENERGY STAR tools, resources, and data services will not be available.

Aside from the above, more changes are planned for ENERGY STAR. Please read more about them here.
