Knoxville, TN: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)38%
Annual (2020)16%

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Knoxville's portfolio consists of more than 87 buildings and 2 million square feet.

*Knoxville has improved energy performance by 38% from a 2010 baseline. A significant reduction in 2020 can be credited heavily to successful energy management measures in response to COVID-19. To mitigate the financial impacts on governmental operations, the City of Knoxville and partners used building automation systems to set more aggressive building setbacks and reduced schedules to match activities and reduce utility costs.
