 The GACC New York hosted the
“Energy Efficiency Award Challenge 2017”
promote German "Green Building" projects in the U.S.

The Efficiency Award Challenge provided participating German companies the chance to showcase their technologies and services that focus on increasing overall building performance for buildings in the U.S. 

The event consisted of three parts: presentations, a site visit, and an evening reception. The  presentations of the five finalist of the Energy Efficiency Award Challenge as well as German and American expert speakers provided attendees the chance to learn about how new building regulations and increased paybacks have improved energy efficiency and building quality in the United States. Afterwards, the Energy Efficiency Award was publicly presented at the Award Ceremony and Evening Reception.

The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)  as part of the "Energy Efficiency - Made in Germany" Initiative.
