The entertainment industry spends approximately $4.6 billion on energy each year to operate facilities that host a variety of events. However, energy usage and costs can be controlled through strategic energy management. Improved energy performance will reduce operating costs, which will increase available funds for attracting and entertaining your visitors. Partner with ENERGY STAR to demonstrate your commitment to improving the energy performance of your building portfolio, as well as to the environment.
Improve the energy performance of the following building types in the entertainment sector:
Active energy management is the key to controlling energy consumption and operating costs. Use EPA's tools and resources below to help you establish an energy management program that includes benchmarking your building portfolio's energy performance, making no- and low-cost O&M improvements, and communicating your successes.
Show your guests, visitors, and fans how your facility has taken steps toward reducing your environmental footprint through energy efficiency, and encourage them to become energy efficient at home and work.
Remind staff to participate in your energy management program and to "Bring Green to Work."
