ENERGY STAR
  • Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through large win-win-win opportunities with today’s energy efficient technologies and practices
    • 30% savings in many buildings, homes, and facilities
  • Provide credible information to buyers to
    • reduce transaction (research) costs
    • reduce perceptions of risk
    • enhance investment in efficient technologies and practices
  • Work with the marketplace to build on motivations of important individual actors

Labeled Products Corporate energy management

-- 40+ products / 1400 manufacturers -- benchmarking, goals, upgrades

-- 10-60% more efficient (management, systems more than widgets)

Labeled New Homes -- whole building labeling forexcellence

-- 30% more efficient

Home Improvement Labeled Products

Services -- for plug loads -- not system components

-- beyond products

-- ducts / home sealing Small business initiative

-- whole home retrofits

success to date
Success to date
  • Started in 1992; now the government backed symbol for energy efficiency
  • In 2005, Americans, with help of ENERGY STAR:
      • saved $12 billion on energy bills
      • prevented ghg emissions equal to 23 million cars
  • ENERGY STAR recognized by over 60% of Americans
to date
To date
  • More than 1.5 billion ENERGY STAR products have been sold to date.
  • More than 2,500 builders have constructed over 360,000 ENERGY STAR homes.
  • EPA’s Energy Performance Rating System has been used to evaluate more than 21,000 buildings; 20% of office buildings, 13% percent of schools, 21% of supermarkets, 34% of hospitals, 9% of hotels have been benchmarked.
  • More than 2,000 buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR.
commercial building opportunities
Commercial Building Opportunities
  • Many cost-effective improvements
    • efficient building uses 40% less than average buildings
    • paybacks of less than 3 to 5 years
  • Focus on: Whole Building Performance
    • promote integration of systems
    • about energy savings -- not presence of new technology
    • achieve twice the savings for a given investment
  • Performance Measurement System
    • can not manage what you can not measure
    • fix missing market information
      • how to measure efficiency / performance
      • when is a building efficient
    • provide information linked to real market transactions (like energy bills)
energy star challenge
ENERGY STAR Challenge
  • National campaign focused on building energy efficiency– promote 10%, 20%, 30% improvements and strategic energy management
  • Launched in March 2005
  • Now supported by ~50 leading associations and states across all sectors (more than half of US states)
  • Creating national call to action to reduce energy use in all building sectors:
      • K-12 Schools
      • Higher Education
      • State and Local Government
      • Commercial and Corporate Real Estate
      • Healthcare
a changing landscape increases importance of energy efficiency
A Changing Landscape IncreasesImportance of Energy Efficiency
  • Energy consumption and costs are rising
  • Market volatility is increasing risk and uncertainty
  • Managing the risk of climate change is becoming a reality for many organizations.
  • Trend toward green building is not necessarily leading to energy-efficient buildings

Energy Efficiency Smart Business
  • Taxpayers benefits from cost-effective reductions:
  • ENERGY STAR qualified offices demonstrate:
    • 35% less energy use
    • $0.50 per square foot less to operate
    • Energy performance persists over multiple years
    • Designing to earn ENERGY STAR helps high performance green buildings stay within conventional construction budget
energy s role in green building
Energy’s Role in Green Building
  • Energy efficiency should be foundation for green building
  • Market assumes green buildings are energy efficient
    • Studies now show that this is not necessarily the case
  • ROI for green buildings comes largely from energy
  • Large environmental benefits from reducing greenhouse gas and other air emissions.
  • Can’t rely solely on technology and code requirements for energy performance
    • Problem:
      • “Better than code” is only weakly correlated to energy performance
      • Specific technologies do not guarantee energy performance

  • Normalized EUI for existing office buildings varies widely
  • 30 kbtu/ft2 to 340 kBtu/ft2
  • Age and equipment not significant drivers of EUI

simple energy metric14
Simple Energy Metric
  • Normalize Building Energy Consumption from bills
    • Weather, hours, occupant density, plug load
    • Whole-building “mpg” rating
  • Compare
    • Benchmark against similar buildings in national stock
    • Receive 1-100 score
  • Reward:
    • Buildings in top 25% qualify for the ENERGY STAR
    • Buildings with intent to perform in top 25% designated “Designed to Earn ENERGY STAR.
    • Organizations with portfolio improvement 10, 20, and 30 point qualify as ENERGY STAR Leader
