Energy Star Battle of the Buildings competition leads to energy savings on up to $50m
A competition that involved over 5,500 buildings across the US has helped cut energy usage by an average of 6% percent for each competitor, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
The organizers, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), revealed that their event, the fifth-annual Energy Star Battle of the Buildings Competition: ‘Team Challenge’, helped cut energy usage and saved competitors $50 million (£32m). They also cut more than 250,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s equivalent to the energy use of more than 37,000 homes.
EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said: “EPA’s Energy Star Battle of the Buildings Competition brings together communities to find important solutions to reduce harmful carbon pollution fuelling climate change, save energy and significantly reduce energy costs in the places where we work, play and learn.
“It’s great to see the collaboration and hard work the competition inspires to accomplish energy efficiency measures that will continue to benefit these communities for years to come.”
