ASHRAE HQ Earns EPA Energy Star


Latest News > Industry News

ASHRAE's newly-renovated Atlanta headquarters has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star for superior energy efficiency, the society has announced.

The Energy Star designation means the building performs in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency. The award was presented on June 28 during ASHRAE's 2010 Annual Conference by Jean Lupinacci, chief of the Energy Star Commercial & Industrial Branch.

Commercial buildings that earn the ENERGY STAR use an average of 35% less energy than typical buildings and also release 35% less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. ASHRAE improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to its building. ASHRAE has prevented greenhouse gas emissions equal to the electricity use from nearly 22 households for a year.

The national average site energy use index (EUI) is 68 and average source EUI is 228. ASHRAE's site energy intensity is 49 and source is 162.
