Making commercial buildings
20% more efficient by 2020

Commercial buildings—our offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants, hotels and stores—consume nearly 20% of all energy used in the United States. We spend more than $200 billion each year to power our country's commercial buildings. Unfortunately, much of this energy and money is wasted; a typical commercial building could save 20% on its energy bills simply by commissioning existing systems so they operate as intended. Energy efficiency is a cost-effective way to save money, support job growth, reduce pollution, and improve competitiveness.

Through the Better Buildings Alliance, members in different market sectors work with the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) exceptional network of research and technical experts to develop and deploy innovative, cost-effective, energy-saving solutions that lead to better technologies, more profitable businesses, and better buildings in which we work, shop, eat, stay, and learn. Join today to start saving energy in your commercial buildings.

Local or state governments or other entities fund the upfront costs of the improvements which are paid back over time through property assessments added to the owner’s property tax bills.
