Kansas City Building Reporting IDkansas_city_building_reporting_idtextBenchmarking ID created by the City of Kansas City Missouri to identify covered buildings.
Property Nameproperty_nametextSefl-selected name for the property.
Zip Codezip_codetextZip Code for property.
Parent Property Nameparent_property_nametextUsed for buildings that are part of a campus. This is the name of the main property.

ENERGY STAR Scoreenergy_star_scorenumberThis score is used to rate buildings on a scale of 1-100. The score indicates the energy efficiency percentile the building is in relation to similar properties. Not all building types are eligible.
Site Energy Use (kBtu)site_energy_use_kbtunumberTotal site energy use for the year. Site Energy is the annual amount of all the energy the property consumes onsite, as reported on your utility bills.
Site EUI (kBtu/ft²)site_eui_kbtu_ftnumberSite energy use per square foot.
National Median Site Energy Use (kBtu)national_median_site_energy_use_kbtunumberNational median total site energy use. This can be used to compare to the local usage.
National Median Site EUI (kBtu/ft²)national_median_site_eui_kbtu_ftnumberNational median site energy use per square foot. This can be used to compare to the local usage.
% Difference from National Median Site EUIdifference_from_national_median_site_euinumber% difference between building site EUI and national median site EUI for similar building use types.
Source Energy Use (kBtu)source_energy_use_kbtunumberSource Energy Use is the total amount of raw fuel that is required to operate the property. In addition to what the property consumes on-site, source energy includes losses that take place during generation, transmission, and distribution of the energy.
Source EUI (kBtu/ft²)source_eui_kbtu_ftnumberSource Energy Use is the total amount of raw fuel that is required to operate the property. In addition to what the property consumes on-site, source energy includes losses that take place during generation, transmission, and distribution of the energy. This number represents per square foot.
National Median Source Energy Use (kBtu)national_median_source_energy_use_kbtunumberNational Median for Source Energy Use.
National Median Source EUI (kBtu/ft²)national_median_source_eui_kbtu_ftnumberNational median Source EUI per square foot.
% Difference from National Median Source EUIdifference_from_national_median_source_euinumber% difference per square foot between the building and the national median.
Weather Normalized Site Energy Use (kBtu)weather_normalized_site_energy_use_kbtunumberThe site energy use the property would have consumed during 30-year average weather conditions.
Weather Normalized Site EUI (kBtu/ft²)weather_normalized_site_eui_kbtu_ftnumberThe site energy use per square foot the property would have consumed during 30-year average weather conditions.
Weather Normalized Source Energy Use (kBtu)weather_normalized_source_energy_use_kbtunumberThe source energy use the property would have consumed during 30-year average weather conditions.
Weather Normalized Source EUI (kBtu/ft²)weather_normalized_source_eui_kbtu_ftnumberThe source energy use per square foot the property would have consumed during 30-year average weather conditions.
Energy Cost ($)energy_costnumberTotal energy cost for the year the data was collected.
Energy Cost Intensity ($/ft²)energy_cost_intensity_ftnumberCost per square foot for the year the data was collected.
Water Use (kgal)water_use_kgalnumberTotal Water Use for the year the data was collected.
Direct GHG Emissions (Metric Tons CO2e)direct_ghg_emissions_metric_tons_co2enumberDirect Emissions are emissions associated with onsite fuel combustion (e.g. combustion of natural gas or fuel oil).
Direct GHG Emissions Intensity (kgCO2e/ft²)direct_ghg_emissions_intensity_kgco2e_ftnumberDirect Emissions are emissions associated with onsite fuel combustion (e.g. combustion of natural gas or fuel oil). This amount is per building square foot.
Indirect GHG Emissions (Metric Tons CO2e)indirect_ghg_emissions_metric_tons_co2enumberIndirect Emissions are emissions associated with purchases of electricity, district steam, district hot water, or district chilled water. These emissions occur at the utility’s plant, but they are a result of the property’s energy consumption and therefore contribute to the overall GHG footprint.
Indirect GHG Emissions Intensity (kgCO2e/ft²)indirect_ghg_emissions_intensity_kgco2e_ftnumberIndirect Emissions are emissions associated with purchases of electricity, district steam, district hot water, or district chilled water. These emissions occur at the utility’s plant, but they are a result of the property’s energy consumption and therefore contribute to the overall GHG footprint. This number is per building square foot.
eGRID Subregionegrid_subregiontextEPA identified eGrid subregion.
eGRID Output Emissions Rate (kgCO2e/MBtu)egrid_output_emissions_rate_kgco2e_mbtunumberThe Electric Emissions Rate conveys the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions associated with the electricity consumption, in kilograms per MBtu. Note that the electric emissions rate depends on where your property is located, EPA uses the average electricity production output emission rate of the electricity grid serving the property, as defined by the Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID).
