Better Buildings Challenge SWAP Greatest Hits
Commercial energy efficiency goes viral with the Better Buildings Challenge SWAP, transforming the conversation about saving energy. It started at Hilton Worldwide and Whole Foods Market. Then the U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Naval Academy were called in. It then spread to the Cities of Atlanta and Boston. And took over the manufacturing plants of L’Oréal USA and General Motors.
SWAP mirrors the goal for DOE's Better Buildings Challenge, an initiative launched in 2011 to improve efficiency of American commercial, institutional, multifamily buildings and industrial plants by 20 percent or more over 10 years. Watch as leading CEOs, public officials, and sustainability directors, commit to sharing ideas to help spur billions in new investments and energy savings in their facilities.
