Commercial Buildings

Our nation's 4 million commercial buildings use about 18% of the energy consumed in the United States. State, local, and tribal governments can work with commercial building owners, property managers and businesses to help them achieve greater efficiencies in lighting, space heating, cooling, and water heating that today account for more than 60% of total commercial energy use. Here you will find project resources and best practices to assist you in creating commercial building programs that improve energy efficiency and reduce operational costs.
