EPA, DOE Announce Winners of 2022 ENERGY STAR Awards
210 organizations leading the way in support of Americaâ€™s clean energy
WASHINGTON (May 5, 2022) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and
the Department of Energy (DOE) are announcing the winners of the 2022 ENERGY
STAR Awards. These 210 organizations, which represent the top ENERGY STAR
partners, are making important contributions in support of Americaâ€™s clean
energy transition. They come from 37 states and span nearly every sector of
the economy, including Fortune 500 companies, schools, retailers,
manufacturers, home builders, and commercial building owners and operators
across the United States.
â€œWe know itâ€™s going to take all of us working together to tackle the
climate crisis, and the 2022 ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are
demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future,â€??? said EPA
Administrator Michael S. Regan. â€œThese companies are showing once again that
taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for
the environment, but also for business and customers.â€???Â
For 30 years, ENERGY STAR has been Americaâ€™s resource for saving energy and
protecting the environment. In 2020, energy savings from ENERGY STAR and its
partners helped reduce U.S. electricity consumption by the equivalent of over
10% of total U.S. demand, while delivering emissions reductions equivalent to
5% of U.S. total greenhouse gas emissions.Â
Leading the way in delivering these results are award-winning partners that
have demonstrated a commitment to energy efficiency through ENERGY STAR. More
