The City of Richmond is calling on Richmond-based commercial, institutional and multifamily properties to participate in the City’s 2016 Building Energy Challenge – a fun and friendly competition to reduce energy use over the course of the year.

As part of the Challenge, participating buildings will:

· Track their performance with Energy Star Portfolio Manager, an online tool for comparing annual consumption over 2016 to the previous year.

· Have access to Energy Coaches who will help building operations staff benchmark energy use and identify energy improvements in their facilities.

· Be given support for building operations staff to take energy management training. The city offers $750 (maximum of $2,250 per organization) towards the cost of the Building Owner and Managers Association’s eEnergy Training for Building Operators.

The city will host energy management kick-off workshops for all registrants in January and February 2016. Visit www.energy.richmond.ca to learn more and register for the Building Energy Challenge.
