U.S. and Canada Sign Agreement to Address Building Energy Efficiency 

3
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the signing of a new Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). The agreement recommits the two agencies to continued collaboration on new enhancements to EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® tool—a free, online energy, water, waste, and emissions measurement and tracking platform for commercial, institutional, and multifamily buildings. To date, more than 26,000 Canadian buildings have used the tool to measure and track their energy use—equivalent to one-third of commercial space in Canada.

“Improving energy efficiency in buildings is essential to achieving our ambitious climate targets,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “Today’s agreement with Natural Resources Canada will continue a 10-year research partnership between our agencies, empowering American and Canadian building owners to reduce energy use, save on costs, and cut climate pollution.” 

“Canada and the United States are doubling down on climate action,” said the Honourable Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. “This agreement is another step we’re taking together towards a net-zero future.”

EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool is the industry standard for measuring and tracking energy performance within commercial buildings, in use by more than 275,000 buildings, which comprise one-quarter of all U.S. commercial building floorspace. The tool provides dozens of energy performance metrics and some buildings can also receive a 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR score, which rates energy performance relative to similar buildings.

The signing of this agreement builds on the unique relationship between the United States and Canada—which also supports collaboration on ENERGY STAR products, homes, and industrial plants—and will further enhance cooperation in commercial building energy efficiency. EPA first started collaborating on commercial building efficiency with NRCan in 2011, enhancing Portfolio Manager with metrics, data, and content specific to Canadian buildings.

The new agreement will enable continued enhancements to Portfolio Manager to benefit Canadian stakeholders, including new 1 – 100 ENERGY STAR scores for the most common building types in Canada, a new greenhouse gas emission comparison feature, and updated Canadian metrics and French content. These enhancements will also benefit U.S. companies that own or manage buildings in Canada as well as consultants who support owners in both countries.

Commercial buildings account for nearly half of all energy consumption in the United States at a cost of more than $300 billion per year, more than any other sector of the economy. An EPA study of 35,000 buildings shows that buildings that benchmark their energy use on a regular basis reduce their energy consumption by 2.4 percent per year.

ENERGY STAR® is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions. Thousands of industrial, commercial, utility, state, and local organizations—including nearly 40 percent of the Fortune 500 ®—rely on their partnership with EPA to deliver cost-saving energy efficiency solutions. Together, since 1992, ENERGY STAR and its partners have helped American families and businesses save 5 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity, avoid more than $450 billion in energy costs, and achieve 4 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions, all through voluntary action.

How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn\'t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. obodubu monday can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. obodubu monday If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +2349058774809 or Email him at : :babadoctorobodubuspiritualhome@gmail.com

My husband left me and my child for another girl three years ago, ever since then my life has been filled with pains, sorrow and trauma because he was my first love and we have been together for years and couldn\'t imagine my life without him. I saw some testimonies about a great spell caster Priest Elijah and how he helps people around the world, that he can bring back lover within some few days, initially I laughed it off and said I am not interested but due to the love I have for my man I consulted the great spell caster and to my greatest surprise after two days my husband called me for the very first time after three years that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through, that he wants me back, we are going to spend our life together and promise never to leave me and my child again. I still can\'t believe my eyes, because it\'s highly unbelievable, it\'s just too good to be true.
