DOE Recognizes 2018 Better Buildings Challenge Goal Achievers 
 
 

 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently recognized 19 Better Buildings Challenge partners who achieved their energy productivity goals for 2018 and 26 partners who have set new Challenge goals after meeting their initial goals. Since the start of this voluntary program, Better Buildings Challenge partners together have saved $3.1 billion in energy-cost savings and 380 trillion British thermal units of energy.

Since the start of the program, more than 65 partners and financial allies have met their energy efficiency, water efficiency and/or financing goals ahead of schedule. Many of these goal achievers have publicly committed to new Challenge goals, demonstrating that continual energy efficiency improvement is possible even after sizable gains have already been made.

DOE recognizes the following partners for achieving the energy, water, and financial goals they set as partners in the Better Buildings Challenge:
    Anthem, Inc (energy and water) – Indianapolis, Indiana
    Ascension (energy) – St. Louis, Missouri
    Bank of America Merrill Lynch (financial) – New York, New York
    C. F. Martin & Co., Inc. (energy) – Nazareth, Pennsylvania
    Citi (financial) – New York, New York
    City of Chicago, Illinois (energy) – Chicago, Illinois
    Columbia Association (energy) – Columbia, Maryland
    EDF Renewables (financial) – San Diego, California
    General Motors (energy) – Detroit, Michigan
    Jersey City Housing Authority (energy) – Jersey City, New Jersey
    Legrand (energy) – Hartford, Connecticut
    Metrus Energy (financial) – San Francisco, California
    New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation (financial) – New York, New York
    PACE Equity (financial) – Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    Shari’s Café & Pies (water) – Beaverton, Oregon
    Sol Systems (financial) – Washington, D.C.
    State of North Carolina (energy)
    Tower Companies (water) – Rockville, Maryland
    UW Health (energy) – Middleton, Wisconsin

The following partners have met their goals previously and are being recognized today for setting new Challenge goals to achieve even greater energy and/or water efficiency:
    3M – 30% reduction in energy intensity by 2025
    Bank America Merrill Lynch – an additional $3 billion in funding for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects

DOE aims to make commercial, public, industrial, and residential buildings 20% more energy efficient over the next decade as part of the Better Buildings Initiative. Greater energy efficiency saves billions of dollars, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and creates U.S. jobs. More than 900 Better Buildings partners are sharing their innovative approaches and successful strategies to accelerate the adoption of energy efficient technologies.
