Many organizations receive recognition via ENERGY STAR Certified Buildings. ENERGY STAR Certification provides valid third-party verification of a building’s energy efficiency.



ENERGY STAR is a Department of Energy program recognizing excellence in energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR certifies appliances, products and buildings that lead their industries in energy efficiency.

Facilities can earn ENERGY STAR certification through a benchmarking process. ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager Tool analyzes energy use through electricity, gas, fuel oil, water, steam and hot water. Analyzing use for individual facility types, ENERGY STAR sets standardized benchmarks, and rates individual buildings for energy use and climate control. All ENERGY STAR certified buildings perform with efficiency in the top 25 percent, compared to their industry peers.
