Attend the Earth Day Energy Summit

Company Profile

Michigan Battle of the Buildings


The U.S. Green Building Council's West Michigan & Detroit Regional Chapters are presenting an Energy Summit on April 22 (Earth Day) as part of the newly-expanded Michigan Battle of the Buildings!

Now a statewide competition, the Michigan Battle of the Buildings is an awards and recognition program for energy use reduction open to all commercial buildings. The program is a way to encourage energy-efficient practices in buildings across Michigan and to instill a spirit of friendly competition among the state’s building owners and operators.  Throughout the competition, participants will cut waste through energy-saving activities such as making improvements to the building, optimizing operations and maintenance, and engaging occupants to save. 


Award Ceremony & Energy Summit
Celebrate Earth Day with the Michigan Battle of the Buildings contestants. The largest event of the contest year will feature Valerie Brader, Senior Strategy Office to Governor Snyder, State of Michigan and Tom Kiser (aka: America’s Energy Coach), Worthington Energy along with panel discussions with the Michigan Battle of the Buildings contestants. Join us as we congratulate the 2014 West Michigan Battle of the Buildings contestants, welcome the 2015 Michigan Battle of the Building contestants, network and learn from each other. Find out what’s working (and what didn’t work) at your neighbor’s building.
