Energy Star changes for 2019

Since awarding the first Energy Star for a top-performing building more than 20 years ago, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program for commercial buildings has certified more than 34,000 commercial buildings for superior energy efficiency, according to an article from Building Operating Management on the FacilitiesNet website. 

Energy Star is continuing to find new ways to provide businesses and organizations with relevant energy-efficiency resources to help reduce energy waste in buildings and plants.
