Buidlings account for ~ 40% of CO2 emissions & 72% of electrical consumption in the US ! All existing buildings, especially Federal buildings should be benchmarked with EnergyStar and be operated to meet at least a rating of 75. Then the building operators should keep on improving the EnergyStar rating , New buildings should designed to meet an EnergyStar rating of at least 80, with the help of Target Finder. It’s what you do, NOT what you say, if you’re NOT part of the energy efficient future, get out of the way!
