Better Buildings Challenge
The City of Atlanta has committed 16 million square feet of public and private space to substantive upgrades as part of the Better Buildings Challenge.
The Better Buildings Challenge is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Better Buildings Initiative, which aims to make U.S. commercial and industrial buildings at least 20% more efficient during the next decade. To achieve this aggressive target, DOE is working with public and private sector partners that commit to being leaders in energy efficiency. These partners will implement energy savings practices that improve energy efficiency and save money, and will showcase effective strategies and the results of their efforts.
The Better Buildings Challenge supports commercial and industrial building owners by providing technical assistance and proven energy efficiency solutions. This initiative also connects Partners with Allies, such as financial institutions and utilities, to encourage collaboration and problem solving in energy efficiency. Both Partners and Allies are publicly recognized for their leadership and innovation in energy efficiency.
