On April 23, Congress passed the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015, a small but important bipartisan bill focused on improving efficiency in U.S. buildings.

For many in the real estate industry, the most notable portion of the bill directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to create a tenant-focused version of EPA’s very successful Energy Star for buildings program.

The new initiative, which the bill gives EPA the option of calling Tenant Star, is being hailed by a wide range of industry stakeholders as the next great tool for driving energy savings in commercial buildings.
