Energy Star Buildings: A Minnesota Market Report

October 23, 2013 in Efficiency, Reports & Whitepapers

Buildings with an ENERGY STAR certification use 35 percent less energy on average than typical buildings, and cumulatively achieve over $2 billion in annual cost savings. Over 300,000 buildings across the country, representing over 40 percent of the commercial market, measure and track their energy use with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager—the tool that identifies potential eligibility for certification.

The purpose of this report is to characterize the market uptake of the ENERGY STAR certification for buildings in Minnesota, which has grown from three buildings in 1999 to 561 certified buildings as of September 15th, 2013. Collectively, certified buildings in Minnesota represent nearly 105 million square feet of floor space.
