Almost 1400 buildings earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR

As of January 1, 2004, close to 1,400 of the nation’s most energy efficient buildings, representing about 325 million square feet, have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR designation for superior energy performance.

ENERGY STAR awareness up to 56 percent

Public awareness of the ENERGY STAR label has jumped to 56 percent of U.S. households, according to a recent nationwide survey. This is a 15 percentage point increase over prior years. In many major markets where local utilities and other organizations use ENERGY STAR to promote energy efficiency to their customers, public awareness is higher, averaging 67 percent.

2004 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Awards

On Tuesday, March 2, EPA and DOE recognized 57 organizations as winners of the 2004 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Awards. These organizations have made outstanding contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. EPA and DOE sponsor these awards annually to recognize energy efficiency investments made by ENERGY STAR partners that saved consumers money while helping the environment. The Partners of the Year are selected from the over 8,000 ENERGY STAR partners based on their efforts to utilize energy-efficient technologies, communicate the benefits of energy savings to consumers and businesses, and encourage others to partner with ENERGY STAR. This year’s award winners included as Lowes Companies Inc., Food Lion, 3M and Lennox Industries Inc.

EPA and Nation’s Counties Announce Energy Efficiency Challenge

The National Association of Counties (NACo), representing more than 1,500 county officials, joined EPA in challenging counties to protect the environment, save energy and cut operating costs by improving the energy efficiency of county courthouse and office buildings. Government agencies spend more than $10 billion a year on energy to provide public services and meet constituent needs while grappling with tightening budgets. Buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance use about 40 percent less energy than average buildings, while cutting costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

EPA Announces Draft Specification for Power Supplies

EPA announced a test procedure and draft efficiency specification for single voltage external AC/DC power supplies. External power supplies convert AC power from the wall outlet into lower voltage DC power for use in cordless tools and telephones, cell phones, and many other consumer and office products. With more than a billion external power supplies shipped worldwide each year, this industry offers significant energy savings potential. This step strengthens EPA’s efforts through the ENERGY STAR program to capture additional environmental benefits by increasing energy efficiency in both active and standby modes across a wide variety of products.
