EPA, DOE Name ENERGY STAR Award Winners

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) have announced the winners of the 2022 ENERGY STAR Awards, which include 210 organizations spanning nearly every sector of the economy, including Fortune 500 companies, schools, retailers, manufacturers, home builders, and commercial building owners and operators.

 “We know it’s going to take all of us working together to tackle the climate crisis, and the 2022 ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan in a statement. “These companies are showing once again that taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for the environment but also for business and customers.” 

In 2020, energy savings from ENERGY STAR and its partners helped reduce U.S. electricity consumption by the equivalent of over 10% of total U.S. demand, while delivering emissions reductions equivalent to 5% of U.S. total GHG emissions. 

Here are a few examples of how 2022 ENERGY STAR Award Winners are taking action:
