Green Building Challenge 2016

The Green Building Challenge is a friendly competition between buildings in Northeast Ohio which measures reduction in energy consumption.  Cleveland 2030 District has collaborated with USGBC Ohio Northeast Region for the past 3 years to present this event.
 
The Challenge measures progress in three categories:
 
Greatest reduction in Energy Use Intensity from baseline through 2015
Greatest reduction in Energy Use Intensity from baseline through 2016
Greatest reduction in Energy Use Intensity from 2015 to 2016
 
Cleveland 2030 District calculates the winners by using Energy Star Portfolio Manager.  Baseline is set by Portfolio Manager using a 2003 Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey. Energy Use Intesity is defined as kBtu/sf per year.
