This article reports on the collaboration of Avista Advantage and Cadence Network with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star partnership to launch automated benchmarking in the grocery trade in September 2005. The partnership takes energy information and bill-handling services' access to real-time accurate energy data and mates it with the agency's first-class energy performance rating system. The system gives each grocers a rating of 1 to 100, based on the stores' physical attributes, operating characteristics, location, and monthly energy use.
