Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released new episodes of the Better Climate Challenge Road Show, showcasing real-world pathways for public and private organizations to decarbonize their buildings and plants. In the second season, DOE energy experts travel to Cleveland, Ohio to see firsthand how Better Climate Challenge partners City of Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic, and Cleveland-Cliffs are addressing emissions reduction and laying the path for other organizations to follow. All Season Two episodes are available to watch now on the Better Buildings Solution Center.  

Showing that decarbonization is possible and economically viable is key to getting all organizations on board to upgrade their buildings and plants. With the Better Climate Challenge Road Show, our goal is to highlight how leading organizations are making real progress cutting emissions while showcasing American ingenuity.

Buildings and manufacturing plants account for roughly two-thirds of U.S. CO2 emissions, and decarbonization is the critical next step in creating a competitive and resilient economy. If all organizations in the commercial, public, and industrial sectors reduced their U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, it would save nearly 1.5 billion metric tons of CO2e annually, more than the annual emissions from every home in the country. More than 170  Better Climate Challenge partners are now leading the way to save energy, cut costs, reduce emissions, and share their successful pathways with the market. 

The Better Climate Challenge is part of the  Better Buildings Initiative, through which DOE partners with leading public and private sector organizations to accelerate emissions reductions and increase energy efficiency across commercial, public, industrial, and residential buildings in the next decade to save energy and money while strengthening the economy. To date, more than 900 Better Buildings Partners have saved more than $18 billion in energy costs while sharing their innovative strategies.
