From Energy Star to Tenant Star: The Next Frontier in Building Efficiency

Through the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015, a notable portion of the bill directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to creat a tenant-focused version of EPA's very successful Energy Star for buildings program, which is being hailded by a wide range of industry stakeholders as the next great tool for driving energy savings in commercial buildings.

The new initiative, which the bill gives EPA the option of calling Tenant Star, is being hailed by a wide range of industry stakeholders as the next great tool for driving energy savings in commercial buildings.

It’s not hard to see the allure of Tenant Star. Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager is already successfully helping more than 400,000 commercial buildings measure, track, assess and report their energy and water use. And last year Energy Star expanded its reach to multifamily housing with the help of Fannie Mae.
