More than 5,500 buildings to compete in EPA’s Fifth-Annual ENERGY STAR Battle of the Buildings
U.S. Commercial buildings are in a race to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
WASHINGTON – Today, Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program launched the 2014 ENERGY STAR Battle of the Buildings: Team Challenge. More than 5,500 buildings nationwide are going head-to-head to reduce their energy use. In support of President Barack Obama’s Climate Action Plan, which calls for businesses to cut in half the amount of energy they waste over the next 20 years, the competition specifically targets wasted energy in commercial buildings, and will motivate businesses to improve energy efficiency, reduce harmful carbon pollution, and save money.
