Kick off the Minneapolis Building Energy Challenge!

As October weather grows colder, thoughts naturally turn to energy in our buildings.  Celebrate National Energy Awareness Month by congratulating buildings on successfully benchmarking their energy.  Although benchmarking was initially unfamiliar for many buildings, this year 90% of buildings successfully responded to the benchmarking request!

Now that buildings have a baseline of energy performance, we're recignizing 6 buildings for high performance and encouraging all buildings to better their energy with the Minneapolis Building Energy Challenge.  Join us, along with Mayor Hodges and Council member Glidden, as we kick off the Challenge!

How would you like to save money, earn recognition, and benefit the community all at the same time?  Step up to the plate and take on the Minneapolis Building Energy Challenge!  

The City is challenging large commercial buildings to better their building energy through energy efficiency and renewable energy actions with the goal of 15% greenhouse gas reduction from 2014 by 2020.  Learn more.



Participation is easy! Simply work to improve efficiency and/or include renewable energy use in your building and continue benchmarking your energy in Portfolio Manager.  No sign up is necessary to be a Participant.  You are eligible to earn annual milestone awards based on emissions and energy use intensity reductions as well as ENERGY STAR score increases.  

Want to go the extra mile?  Commit to achieving the 15% reduction and become a Challenge Leader.  Challenge Leaders earn special recognition in City websites, newsletters, and case studies for their dedication to improving their building energy.
