ENERGY STAR’s 2015 Battle of the Buildings Competition is Now Open

Lyn Bentley


ENERGY STAR’s 2015 Battle of the Buildings competition is now open for registration. In past years, competitors who reduced their energy consumption saved an average of $25,000 and reduced energy consumption by 8%.

This is EPA’s fifth year and in 2014, more than 100 teams threw their hats in the ring. Teams were made up of at least 5 buildings and included different types of buildings. Teams can come from a region, by city, state, or other configuration.

EPA will recognize teams and buildings with the biggest reductions, and will once again offer recognition to any competitor reducing energy or water use by 20% or more. ENERGY STAR is making a massive recruitment effort now in the senior care sector and is offering the following items.  Check out the sample Web banner, buttons, newsletter articles, tweets, and web text.  Would you consider using it?

This past fall, ENERGY STAR expanded space types eligible for a score and recognition to include multifamily. This will enable members that have predominantly senior independent living to benchmark, receive a score, and potentially be eligible for recognition.
