20 Opportunities to Enhance Natural Gas Share of Multifamily Market 20

21 A $5 million prize for the community that leads the way in energy efficiency Objectives Foster innovative approaches to energy efficiency Educate the public and engage students in energy issues Grow markets for products & services that facilitate energy efficiency Eligibility Criteria Cities and counties in the U.S. with a population from 5,000 to 250,000. Judging will be based on reductions in Residential and Municipal buildings energy use*, innovation of approach, quality of community outreach, sustainability, and replicability * Based on Source energy 21

22 First web-enabled, fully interactive green building assessment and certification program An efficient and affordable alternative to LEED Provides an effective way to advance the overall environmental performance and sustainability of new and existing commercial and multifamily buildings Four paths for evaluating energy performance. Two paths use a source energy convention for measuring energy. 22

23 Launched by President Obama in December 2011 to improve the efficiency of American commercial buildings, decrease energy costs and emissions while simultaneously creating jobs and building a stronger economy. Organizations committing to the BBC agree to: Conduct an energy efficiency assessment and pledge to an energy savings goal Implement plans to achieve lasting energy savings Report results and share best practices for saving energy In 2013, the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have partnered to expand the Better Buildings Challenge to the multifamily residential sector 23
