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.
EPA's ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry encourages energy managers and industrial sites improve energy performance. Reference this one-page summary to learn about participant activity up to Winter 2016.
This checklist is used by Professional Engineers during validation process for plants that have achieved the Challenge for Industry reduction goal. The checklist is part of the materials required for applying for recognition.
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.
Use this tool to determine your container glass manufacuring plant's ENERGY STAR 1 - 100 energy performance indicator score. The Energy Peformance Indicator (EPI) will help your company improve its energy efficiency by comparing your energy performance to similar container glass manufacturing plants in the U.S. The spreadsheet includes instructions for using the EPI, a State of Energy Performance form, and a Facility Performance Report. Manufacturing plants that earn a 75 or higher using this EPI are eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance.
Use this tool to benchmark the energy performance of cookie and cracker bakeries and determine the plant's ENERGY STAR 1 to 100 energy performance score.
The EPI will help your company improve its energy efficiency by comparing your energy performance to similar cookie and cracker manufacturing plants in the U.S. The spreadsheet includes instructions for using the EPI, a State of Energy Performance form, and a Facility Performance Report.
This online calculator pulls weather station data--including heating and cooling degree days (HDD and CDD)--from more than 900 weather stations around the United States and Canada. Use the weather normalization data here to adjust your building's or industrial plant's energy usage data for changes in weather.
This report describes the work of EPA and the automobile manufacturing industry to develop an Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for assembly plants. These types of plants are defined as those that produce passenger cars, light-duty trucks, sport utility vehicles, and vans in the United States. Learn how EPA uses EPIs to encourage industries to voluntarily improve their energy use. The report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the EPI for automobile assembly plants. The equations are presented with instructions for using them in an associated Excel spreadsheet.
