ENERGY STAR products are independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality. Saving energy helps prevent climate change. Look for the ENERGY STAR label to save money on your energy bills and help protect our environment.
Improving your home's energy efficiency with ENERGY STAR can help to lower high energy bills, improve comfort and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Learn about the many ways to save in your home and track your progress with "My ENERGY STAR" - your new dashboard to savings.
A new home or apartment that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the US EPA. ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments use significantly less energy than typical new homes and apartments while delivering better comfort, quality, and durability.
Use this case study to learn about the work Kansas City has done in partnership with ENERGY STAR over the last several years to improve the energy efficiency of its municipal buildings. Local governments can use these approaches and best practices to drive savings in their buildings and enhance their ability to invest in services for their communities.
This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for commercial bread and roll bakeries. It reviews how the EPI was developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy performance by working with the baking industry. The report also presents the individual equations used in the EPI.

Celebrating the unsung heroes of energy efficiency (because buildings don’t run themselves)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency expanded the ENERGY STAR program to address industrial energy efficiency in 2000. Since then, the program has helped manufacturers strengthen their energy management practices and has engaged entire manufacturing sectors in focused energy efficiency efforts. The results demonstrate that energy efficiency is a cost-effective strategy for reducing GHG emissions in the manufacturing sector.
Energy costs typically account for 5-7% of the overall operating costs in a metal casting foundry. Energy waste is found in all plants, and improving energy efficiency goes right to the bottom line. Following the procedures outlined in this guide will reduce your energy costs (and dollars spent) per ton of cast metal while improving your environmental reputation as well as image in the community.
