The competition includes 245 teams from 26 different types of commercial buildings, including retail stores, schools, hotels, and museums, from 33 states and the District of Columbia. Using EPA's ENERGY STAR online energy tracking tool, Portfolio Manager, competitors will measure and track their building's monthly energy consumption, make improvements to their building's energy performance, and share their progress.
