I’m honored to share that Ecova has received a 2014 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award from ENERGY STAR, their highest honor!
The Award recognizes Ecova’s long-term commitment to energy efficiency and is reflective of our expertise in energy and sustainability management. Several of my colleagues will attend the ENERGY STAR ceremony on April 29th in Washington, DC to accept the award on behalf of Ecova. Many of our clients have also won an ENERGY STAR award, so it’s a great opportunity to share in our joint success as partners and celebrate the work we do together.
We’re very proud of our partnership with ENERGY STAR, as well as the work we do with our clients to promote this important program. Both ENERGY STAR and Ecova strive to promote sustainable resource consumption through benchmarking and the tracking of energy data.
Ecova has continued to grow the number of buildings we submit to Portfolio Manager, ENERGY STAR’s online reporting tool. We now work with our clients to benchmark 46,000 buildings each month, and we continue to help clients earn ENERGY STAR labels for their buildings by performing site audits. We’re also actively engaged in supporting our clients’ need to comply with new benchmarking requirements implemented by numerous local jurisdictions, a trend gaining momentum across North America.
We’re looking forward to the Awards ceremony later this month and our continued relationship with ENERGY STAR. I’m proud of our accomplishments and of our many employees who have contributed to our ongoing ENERGY STAR efforts. A special congratulations to our clients receiving an award―it’s clear that the work we are doing is making a difference and will have lasting impact in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency.
