When EPA launched the first-ever ENERGY STAR National Building Competition in 2010, 14 competitors went head-to-head for the title of Biggest Energy Loser. Since then, more competitors joined the race each year, and the energy savings—and positive environmental impacts—have multiplied with every competition.
In 2016, the competitors were put into overdrive! During a three-month, boot camp-inspired sprint, competitors focused on engaging building occupants and employees in tackling energy and water waste, one simple action at a time.
