Sign your support for the Wireless Meter Challenge and review the specification
The wireless meter challenge has been launched to catalyze the development of low cost metering solutions. Meters are an integral component of energy reduction in commercial buildings as they provide access to real time granular energy use data, allowing decision makers to make informed and immediate changes to their energy consuming building systems..
Participate in Technology Solutions Teams
Further your energy-saving goals by connecting with Technology Solutions Teams, such as Lighting & Electrical, Energy Management Information Systems, Laboratories, Refrigeration, Space Conditioning, and Food Service.
Join the Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) Campaign
LEEP into lighting and lower your facility's exterior lighting operating costs through thoughtful design of a new parking site or lighting retrofits. To become part of the campaign, submit a registration form. Visit the Lighting & Electrical team page for more information.
Save energy by managing your laboratory's freezers, reheat, and fume hoods
Retrofit high efficiency fume hoods, take advantage of the fume hood sash management campaign, reduce simultaneous heating and cooling, and test ultra-low temperature freezers. Visit the Laboratories team page to see savings data from Better Buildings Alliance member implementation of lab efficiency measures and more information.
Save energy by installing high performance rooftop units (RTUs), implementing retrofit measures, and joining the Advanced RTU Campaign
The Space Conditioning team is helping members realize energy and costs savings of 20 to 50% through the installation of new high efficiency RTUs produced by the High Performance Rooftop Unit Challenge, advanced control retrofits, and participation in the Advanced RTU Campaign.
Engage in High-Efficiency Troffer lighting and wallpack lighting activities
Participate in a high-efficiency troffer lighting field test and get involved in the development of a new Better Buildings Alliance specification for wallpack lighting. Visit the Lighting & Electrical Team page for more information.
Participate in Public Sector Teams
Further your energy-saving goals by connecting with the Public sector team members and resources on Community Strategic Energy Planning, Finance Strategies, Energy Savings Performance Contracts, and Data Management Approaches.
