The Community Centre Challenge

Community Centre    Community Centre

The Community Centre Challenge aims to identify, recognize and document the most energy efficient community centres. It will run from 2016 to 2020, and is open to municipalities and other organizations which operate such facilities.

Participants will benchmark energy use for their buildings against each other, normalize for variables between buildings, and determine their conservation potential based on good practice targets from comparable facilities. Buildings with the least targeted savings potential are considered the most energy efficient.

Participants in the Challenge receive their annual Energy Assessment Report for each year of the Challenge, presenting their electricity and thermal energy, utility cost and emissions savings potential, their actual, weather-normalized savings over the prior year, and where their remaining opportunities are to be found. The most energy efficient facilities for 2020 will be recognized and celebrated in 2021.
