EMA and ENERGY STAR Announce Retro Rumble Competition

April 27, 2020
The competition will help provide recognition to companies that perform energy efficiency projects in commercial and public buildings.

The Energy Management Association (EMA) and its partner ENERGY STAR recently launched the Retro Rumble competition to provide deserved recognition for the achievements of companies that perform energy efficienty projects in commerical and public buildings. 

The Retro Rumble focuses on individual retrofit and retro-commissioning projects by submitting building performance data through ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager along with a general description of the projects. The competition will run through June 30, 2020. 

“The Retro Rumble is a competition that recognizes the remarkable conservation and savings accomplishments made by energy service providers,” said EMA President Bob Knoedler, PE, CxA, EMP (Hanson Professional Services Inc.), in the press release. “These accomplishments have made great contributions to the economy, environment and resiliency in this country. Equally important, it’s a way to make a statement that ‘we can’t wait to get going again.’”  

To apply for recognition, participants begin at the EMA Retro Rumble Portal. After the initial application is filed there, applicants will receive a link to ENERGY STAR’s data request form where facility service providers submit data. Data can be submitted by using either an existing account or by setting up new accounts and properties in order to participate. Those new to Portfolio Manager may consult the benchmarking starter kit. Once the property or properties are set up in the tool, contestants upload at least 12 calendar months of energy data to generate metrics including EUI and/or the 1-to-100 ENERGY STAR Score.

Winners of the competition will be recognized on the EMA website, newsletter, social media outlets and at CxEnergy 2021 in Fort Worth, TX.
