For the third year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is offering commercial building owners and managers an opportunity to achieve real energy, water, and cost savings and be nationally recognized for your efforts!
From April 30 to May 23, EPA is accepting nominations to its 2012 ENERGY STAR National Building Competition, a coast-to-coast contest to see who can reduce energy waste the most. Applying is easy—just follow the step-by-step instructions at www.energystar.gov/BattleOfTheBuildings to nominate one, several, or all of the buildings in your portfolio. To be eligible to compete, a building must be benchmarked in EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager with complete data entered for calendar year 2011.
The competition is a fun and engaging way to jumpstart environmental projects, test new ideas and technologies, and share best practices with other participants. Competitors will have the opportunity to participate in monthly networking sessions, use free competition creative materials and logos, and be included on the competition website. EPA will also promote the competition through traditional and social media.
For more information about the competition, rules of the game, FAQs, and stories from last year’s battle, visit www.energystar.gov/battleofthebuildings.
