Green Building Challenge 2017

GBC 2017.png

The Green Building Challenge is a friendly competition between buildings in Northeast Ohio, measuring reduction in energy consumption.  Cleveland 2030 District has collaborated with USGBC Ohio Northeast Region for the past 4 years to present this event. 

The Challenge measures progress in four categories:

Greatest reduction in Energy Use Intensity from baseline through 2017

Greatest reduction in Energy Use Intensity from 2016 to 2017

Greatest reduction in Water Use Intensity from baseline through 2017

Greatest reduction in Water Use Intensity from 2016 to 2017

 

Cleveland 2030 District calculates the winners by using Energy Star Portfolio Manager.  The energy baseline is set by Portfolio Manager using a 2003 Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey.  The water baseline is set by using the building's own 2010 water use provided by the Cleveland Department of Water.
