Outperform Similar U.S. Buildings in Energy Efficiency

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School and Cambridge Rindge and Latin School have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance.

“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment, “ said Cindy Jacobs, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.”

ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

“We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at both schools and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in their efficient operation,” said Vedad Konjic, Interim Chief Operations Officer. “Saving energy demonstrates to our community that we’re committed to protecting the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.”

Konjic credits this success to several investments, such as enhanced lighting controls, a high efficiency boiler plant with enhanced controls, a high efficiency chilled water plant with enhanced controls, “chilled beam” system with heat recovery and enhanced controls for majority of the building, HVAC controls enhancements, building envelope enhancements, and a photovoltaic (PV) system.

On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.

To date, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across all fifty states have earned the ENERGY STAR. More information about ENERGY STAR for Buildings and Plants >>
