List of competing teams

This year’s Battle of the Buildings features a new, special theme: “Team Challenge!” For the first time, five or more buildings will compete as part of a team to see who can slim down their energy “wastelines” the most. Teaming up is a great way to motivate, collaborate, and learn new strategies that can lead to bigger savings for everyone.

More than 100 teams are competing. For example, “Team Staples” includes 17 Staples stores, while 15 Whole Foods stores will support each other as part of “Team Whole Foods Market.” In New Castle County, Delaware, it’s the elementary schools up against the middle schools and the high schools. And in Hillsborough Country, Fla., it’s brains versus brawn as the libraries team up to compete against the fire stations. 

All the teams have spent the past six months training and preparing for the battle ahead. But do they have what it takes to win the competition?
