CHICAGO, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Goby as an ENERGY STAR Top Certifier for exceeding 150 ENERGY STAR certifications in 2014. Last year alone, Goby certified 346 buildings and has been recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year two years in a row (2015, 2014).
"Goby's mission is simple; to help our clients run better buildings. Our partnership with ENERGY STAR validates that the data we collect for our clients is accurate therefore allowing us to increase the value of their real estate through sustainability and operational efficiency, and assist in earning recognition for their efforts through opportunities such as ENERGY STAR certification," said Chris Happ, CEO at Goby.
When the Stevens Building earned the ENERGY STAR certification in 2014 with help from Goby LLC, it celebrated not only the 15th Anniversary of ENERGY STAR for buildings – but also its own 100th birthday! First constructed in 1914, Stevens Building is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Goby assisted Marc Realty in benchmarking the Stevens Building in Portfolio Manager. As a result, the facilities team gained access to valuable information about the savings and results achieved to date through energy efficiency measures such as lighting upgrades – as well as an opportunity to earn ENERGY STAR certification as validation of the impact of those efforts.
Goby leverages the proprietary SeaSuite technology and its sustainability experts to assist clients in cost-efficient and high-impact sustainability planning, monitoring, implementation and overall program management. SeaSuite ensures that its clients have the power of information by automating their data from various sources into a single platform which is used to provide detailed analytics through dynamic dashboards and integration with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, GRESB, and LEED.
