Thank you for your support of ENERGY STAR.  Your efforts continue to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions across U.S. buildings and facilities.  

Commercial and industrial organizations continued strong activity in 2008, outpacing previous year efforts.  Use of EPA's energy performance rating system maintained solid growth.  At the end of 2008, more than 11.5 billion square feet of space has been rated.  And at the same time new organizations partnering with EPA as ENERGY STAR partners nearly tripled.  Recognition of organizations for improvement and top performance grew significantly and the number of facilities qualifying for the ENERGY STAR label surpassed 6,200.  

To update you on this progress, please view the latest version of the “ENERGY STAR Snapshot: Measuring Progress in the C&I Sectors”.  The report also includes state-by-state activity and ratings data on the top Designated Market Areas in the U.S.  

The ENERGY STAR Snapshot is distributed twice a year - look for the next issue this fall!
