School Cuts 52% Energy Use to Win EPA Competition

May 21, 2013

The winner of the third-annual Energy Star National Building Competition was Demarest Elementary School in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The school reduced its energy use by 52 percent.

More than 3,000 schools, businesses, and government buildings competed in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) competition to see which could reduce its energy use the most in one year.

Combined, this year's competitors cut their energy costs by more than $50 million and saved more than three billion kBtus of energy. Eighty-nine buildings in the competition saw a 20 percent or greater reduction.

Competitors tracked their buildings' monthly energy consumption using EPA's Energy Star Portfolio Manager, an online energy tracking tool.
