The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Berthoud-based EnergyLogic with a 2016 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for its continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements. EnergyLogic’s accomplishments will be recognized in Washington, D.C. on April 13.

EnergyLogic, an Energy Star partner since 2009, is considered a regional expert in Energy Star implementation. In Colorado, EnergyLogic certified 1,680 (58 percent) of the 2,872 Energy Star-certified homes that were built in 2015.

The Berthoud-based company specializes in building consulting and provides expert resources, education and support to new home builders and energy raters involved in the construction of high‐performance homes. Its products and services include an energy rating system, rater services, an enterprise software system and a training program. EnergyLogic also serves as a resource to other organizations that are influential in creating energy-efficient housing across America, including industry associations, construction and building professionals, utility companies, government code officials, state energy offices and real estate professionals.

The company will be honored for its leadership providing Energy Star training to local builders and HVAC (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and cooling) contractors. It will also be honored for its innovation developing software applications that enable builders and other energy efficiency trade professionals who work on Energy Star homes to electronically track and share reports in real-time.

“We’re honored to be recognized by the Energy Star program for our commitment to making America’s homes more sustainable,” said Steve Byers, CEO of EnergyLogic. “Americans are getting more educated and savvy about the benefits of energy efficiency, and are motivated by economic and environmental factors to live a more energy-efficient life. People are trending toward asking for homes with features that lower their operating costs and are built to last, and that keep them warmer, safer, healthier and more comfortable. We’re privileged to have an impact on this positive movement through our partnership with Energy Star.”

Since its inception in 1992, Energy Star and its partners have helped prevent a total of more than 2.4 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. In 2014 alone, Energy Star and its partners provided more than $11 billion in societal benefits due to reducing damages from climate change.

“By continued collaboration with Energy Star, EnergyLogic is helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate climate change,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “I’m proud to recognize EnergyLogic with the highest form of Energy Star recognition, as the winner of the 2016 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award. EnergyLogic demonstrates a strong commitment to energy efficiency and to preserving a healthy planet for future generations.”

The 2016 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards are given to a variety of organizations to recognize their contributions to reducing harmful carbon pollution through superior energy efficiency efforts. These awards recognize ongoing leadership across the Energy Star program, including energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
