BURLINGTON, MA (January 26, 2023) – EBI Consulting is pleased to announce its acceptance to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s ENERGY STAR Certification Nation program in 2022.
The ENERGY STAR program was created over 20 years ago by the EPA to provide building owners and operators an effective way to determine the efficiency of their buildings compared to other similar buildings in the same locale. To celebrate the program’s 30th anniversary, the EPA launched a special one-time recognition to organizations who certify five or more buildings in 2022, with higher tiers of recognition available based on the number of buildings certified.
In 2022, EBI Consulting achieved the second-highest tier, Executive Members, after certifying 72 buildings. EBI joins 12 other companies in the “Executive Members” category.
EBI’s Energy and Sustainability team has for over a decade offered ENERGY STAR services to help clients evaluate energy usage across their portfolios, identify areas of improvement, and assist with the application process to ensure they meet program requirements. In addition to obtaining the ENERGY STAR certification to meet local compliance requirements, being ENERGY STAR certified helps owners to become exempt from other requirements that require additional services and costs, have a more complete overview of portfolio energy use, and save money due to less energy used and mortgage interest-rate reductions for some assets.
“The Environmental Protection Agency’s recognition for EBI Consulting’s ENERGY STAR work is a great recognition and testament to our expertise in green building certifications,” said Nolan Previte, EBI Consulting’s President and CEO. “As EBI continues to expand and develop our services related to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) for our clients, which is largely operational improvement and energy efficiency consulting, we look to continue growing the number of ENERGY STAR-certified properties. It’s a privilege to be able to make a positive environmental impact while helping our clients reduce energy costs and consumption, and we appreciate the recognition for that work through Certification Nation.”
In addition to ENERGY STAR certification, EBI Consulting offers other energy compliance services including LEED accreditation, MEP commissioning and retro-commissioning, energy audits and benchmarking, and a suite of ESG services to help clients identify and successfully implement their Environmental, Social and Governance goals in addition to energy and sustainability work.
