Cenergistic earns first-ever ENERGY STAR 2015 SocialStar Award For Innovation in Social Media

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

DALLAS, TEXAS — Cenergistic representatives thought they knew what they were getting into when they arrived in Washington, D.C. to receive the company’s seventh-straight ENERGY STAR award on April 20. This year, they got a little more: the nation’s first-ever SocialStar Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

In addition, the EPA recognized Cenergistic with a 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award in the Service and Product Provider division for continued leadership in protecting our environment through superior energy efficiency achievements.

Cenergistic, an ENERGY STAR partner, was honored for its long-term commitment to energy efficiency. Three  Cenergistic clients also received awards, including a DFW-area school district.

  • Loudoun County Public Schools, Ashburn, Virginia (a Washington, D.C. suburb) earned 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award in the Energy Management Division. LCPS has been a Cenergistic client since 1993 and has saved $62.6 million, cutting expected energy expenses by 28 percent.
  • Cherokee County Schools, Murphy, North Carolina earned 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in the Energy Management Division. CCS has been a Cenergistic client since 2009 and has saved $1.8 million, cutting expected energy costs by 27 percent.
  • Mansfield Independent School District, Mansfield, Texas, earned 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in the Energy Management Division. The district earned the award in 2014 as well. MISD has been a Cenergistic client since 2012, saving $2.4 million thus far. The district has earned more than 200 ENERGY STAR Building Certifications — more than any other Texas school district.

More than 1,360 organizations have followed Cenergistic’s technical and behavioral approach to optimizing systems to realize significant savings in energy, maintenance and operating costs. The company’s clients have saved more than $3.7 billion since 1986.

“Cenergistic truly values our partnership with ENERGY STAR,” said Dr. Randy Hoff, PE, CEM. “It’s exciting to see the impact we’ve made through our behavioral energy conservation program. We remain committed to continuing our work to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the environment.”

Since its inception in 1992, ENERGY STAR and its partners have helped prevent a total of more than two billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. In 2013 alone, ENERGY STAR and its partners provided more than $11 billion in societal benefits due to reducing damages from climate change.

“Through sustained participation with ENERGY STAR, Cenergistic is helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that fuel climate change,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “I applaud Cenergistic for earning EPA’s highest ENERGY STAR award, the 2015 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award, demonstrating a strong commitment to energy efficiency and to preserving a healthy planet for future generations.”

The 2015 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards were given to a variety of organizations to recognize their contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through superior energy efficiency achievements. These winners have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by setting and achieving aggressive goals, and employing innovative energy efficiency approaches. These awards recognize ongoing leadership across the ENERGY STAR program, including energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
