The Toolkit can help your organization promote energy efficiency and encourage members and customers to participate in the ENERGY STAR Race to Denver leading up to the 2013 AIA National Convention.
EPA is asking for your organization’s help in promoting the ENERGY STAR 2013 Race to Denver. The Race is a friendly competition among organizations, businesses, the public sector, and architecture firms within three regions of the U.S.– the East Coast, Big Easy Central, and Wild West.
Your organization can help your region win by asking members and customers to submit all design projects that achieve Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR. The Architect of Record is responsible for submitting the projects to EPA.
EPA will honor the organizations in the winning region, A/E firms, projects, and building owners at the 2013 AIA National Convention in Denver, CO.
Projects submitted for the Race to Denver demonstrate estimated energy efficiency ranking among the top 25% of similar buildings. The intent of energy-efficient building design is to reduce the fossil fuel energy use associated with greenhouse gas emissions—answering the EPA and 2030 Challenge to reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment.
