Energy Department Opens Better Building Federal Award Competition
Did you help a federal agency client improve building energy efficiency? Encourage that partner to apply for the Energy Department’s 2013 Better Buildings Federal Award.
The award recognizes the federal government’s highest-performing buildings, honoring the facility that achieves the greatest energy savings at the end of a 12-month competition period.
The Department will select award finalists based on energy efficiency measures deployed in the facility, best practices in energy management undertaken by facility personnel, and institutional change programs used to encourage sustainability efforts within the facility.
The BBFA is part of the Obama Administration’s Better Buildings Initiative challenging the private and public sector to make rapid investments to improve energy efficiency in America’s buildings by 20 percent over the next decade. As part of the initiative, the Administration issued a Presidential Memorandum committing the federal government and its agencies to enter into a minimum of $2 billion in performance-based contracts to improve federal building energy efficiency over the next two years.
