EPA's Battle of the Buildings Competition Underway

EPA reports that a record number of 3,200 buildings are competing in its Energy Star program's 2012 National Building Competition: Battle of the Buildings. The buildings are competing to improve energy efficiency, protect health and the environment and decrease utility costs. The agency says that teams use  EPA's Portfolio Manger to keep track and measure monthly energy consumption. The public can follow progress online, and winners of the year-long competition will be announced in April 2013.
