We've teamed up with the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation to host a Launch Party and Lunch & Learn on Wednesday, January 29th to learn about the Urbana-Champaign ENERGY STAR Challenge and meet others taking the Challenge. The effort invites building owners and managers to benchmark their buildings' 2013 enery use on the free ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool and then track and improve their energy performance through 2014.

Buildings will compete against one another to see who can achieve the greatest energy use reduction in 2014 with awards to follow in early 2015.  Participants can access free in-person assistance using the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool, get connected with financial incentives to move their projects forward, and have access to technical support to help pinpoint building energy savings.

This free Lunch & Learn will demonstrate the basic functions of ENERTY STAR Portfolio Manager and show you how to get your building ENERGY STAR Certified.
