Exchanging Data: Resources to Help you Get Started

EPA offers a suite of RESTful web services that allow you to exchange data with Portfolio Manager. You can use these services to benchmark your own buildings, enter data on behalf of your customers, and receive ENERGY STAR metrics to incorporate in your own energy information software and services.
