Minneapolis Building Energy Challenge Kick-off

Oct 2, 2015

CEE is a key partner in the City of Minneapolis' benchmarking ordinance, providing technical and outreach expertise.



On October 14th the City of Minneapolis will host the Minneapolis Building Energy Challenge — a call to commercial buildings to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 15% from a 2014 baseline by the year 2020. The event will kick off at City Hall with Mayor Hodges as well as Council Member Glidden. All buildings that are subject to the benchmarking ordinance may participate in the Challenge and are eligible for milestone awards, which will be presented at annual award ceremonies starting in 2016. Buildings can solidify their dedication and become Challenge Leaders by publicly committing to the Challenge. Challenge Leaders will be celebrated each year at award ceremonies for their ongoing commitment, in addition to website, case study, and newsletter recognition. 

At the event, the Mayor will call out Challenge Leaders who have already committed, and honor six current high-performing buildings woth awards based on the benchmarking results in three categories: Business, Hospitality/Recreation, and Arts/Community/Education.
