AWARD PROGRAM

During the event, the City of Milwaukee will be announcing award winners in five categories, plus a general recognition for active participants. In order to be eligible for the awards below, a building must take the Better Buildings Challenge pledge by September 8, 2017. Any additional details and eligibility requirements can be found at the City's BBC Award Webpage.

  • The Outstanding Energy Performance award recognizes the building with the most significant Source Energy Use Intensity (EUI) reduction in 2016 compared to the building's baseline year. This award is determined based on data submitted through ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®.
  • The People's Choice Award is a special recognition that focuses on celebrating the community of participants that make up the City Of Milwaukee's Better Buildings Challenge. By sharing participant experiences and progress, this award helps to build the invaluable network that serves to support and assist all participants with their building's energy reduction goals and ultimately make Milwaukee a world-class eco-city. Candidates are highlighted leading up to the ReEnergize MKE 2017 event via social media and through online profiles and will have a physical display at the event. Attendees will vote on the candidate that they believe has done the most to embrace the Better Buildings Challenge.
  • The ReEnergizer Rating award recognizes holistic commitment to energy efficiency and operational excellence and encompasses total Better Buildings Challenge program participation. All participating buildings that achieve a minimum of 50 points, as described below, will receive a rating.
  • The Energy Efficiency Project of the Year award highlights individual projects that display innovation and a high impact on energy use relative to investment, including use of available incentives. Projects are self-nominated and the winner in each building category (large building >100,000 sf, small building <100,000 sf, K-12 school) will be determined by a blind jury of Better Buildings Challenge partners and experts based on the award criteria below. A building's category is determined by the square footage and use type reported in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®.
  • Intended to shed light on leaders often working behind the scenes, the ReEnergizer of the Year award recognizes exceptional facility managers, building engineers, and others that successfully lead their team in going above and beyond to manage building operational efficiency, seek out energy reduction projects, and implement tenant engagement strategies.
  • The Occupant Engagement award highlights the building team that has done the best job in communicating their energy efficiency goals and initiatives to their tenants or other occupants and has engaged their occupants to implement initiatives within their individual leased spaces (where applicable) to support the building goals and initiatives.
