EPA recognizes Cenergistic — leading the pack in ENERGY STAR® certifications for buildings

DALLAS, TX — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Cenergistic and 12 other organizations as ENERGY STAR Top Certifiers for exceeding 150 ENERGY STAR certifications in 2014. Last year alone, Cenergistic certified 490 client buildings — more than any other organization.

Collectively, ENERGY STAR Top Certifiers certified more than 2,600 buildings in 2014, saved $562 million, and prevented 2.7 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. This number of certifications represents more than a third of the nearly 7,000 commercial buildings and industrial plants that earned the ENERGY STAR last year.

“Cenergistic has partnered with ENERGY STAR to earn over 6,200 certifications for over 4,000 buildings in 44 states. The program provides tools and support to help our clients recognize the impact of their energy savings efforts. We couldn’t be more proud to be named an ENERGY STAR Top Certifier,” said Cenergistic CEO Dr. Randy Hoff, PE, CEM, CMVP.

Cenergistic clients have saved more than $3.8 billion since 1986. Company engineering and conservation experts train clients to optimize systems and schedules, conserving energy and improving the learning or working environment. Patented technology tools assist in analysis and identification of savings opportunities. This year, Cenergistic earned from ENERGY STAR, the 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence award — the company’s seventh-straight national recognition, as well as the first-ever ENERGY STAR SocialStar Award.

To earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR, a building or plant must be proven to perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide, and also meet strict standards for indoor air quality and occupant comfort. ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use an average of 35 percent less energy and are responsible for 35 percent fewer carbon dioxide emissions than typical buildings. Since 1999, more than 25,000 buildings across America have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification. These buildings have saved nearly $3.4 billion on utility bills and prevented greenhouse gas emissions equal to the emissions from the annual electricity use of nearly 2.4 million homes.

EPA determined the list of Top Certifiers by reviewing the organizations associated with all 2014 ENERGY STAR certifications listed in the ENERGY STAR Certified Buildings & Plants Registry.
