The Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Sustainability is hosting the first ever Energy Challenge in partnership with the Downtown Development District.  Buildings of any size, from every sector are invited to measure their energy use and enter their data into ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager during the Challenge period.

All buildings in the Downtown Development District are eligible to compete for prizes and industry recognition, based on energy data benchmarking.  Free technical assistance and training provided by the City of New Orleans’ Office of Resilience and Sustainability. More information and the link to register are at

The next training topic, Energy Audits and Retro-Commissioning, will be held on May 16th at 12pm.  Let us help you become more energy efficient and save money!  An energy audit can identify how energy is used in a facility and reveal opportunities to improve energy efficiency and the building’s energy savings potential.  Retro-commissioning is the systematic process of testing existing building systems in order to improve a building’s operations and maintenance procedures without capital upgrades.

Attendees include building operators, engineers, managers, architects, owners, and interested community members. This is a free seminar, but registration is required.
