ENERGY STAR to Certify Sports Stadiums and Arenas
Continuing to expand its reach,
ENERGY STAR is now looking
at sports stadiums and arenas
as a potential avenues for certification.
However, before it is able to do so, it is
soliciting information from stadium and
arena owners and operators to take place
in an anonymous survey about their
energy and water usage.
The survey it has developed examines
the energy and water usage of sports
facilities in 2015, and the information
will be used to help develop more efficient stadium and arena practices in the
The survey’s findings are expected
to be released in 2017, and ENERGY
STAR certification could be available by
2018. The certification would recognize
stadiums and arenas that are leaders in
environmental action and distinguish
energy-efficient stadiums from others.
this survey will
prove to be useful
in addressing areas where energy
and water use
can be impacted
on a large scale.
Data on efficiency
will be particularly helpful in
current blind spot
in the ENERGY
as the organization would like to learn
more about stadiums drawing crowds
exceeding 100,000 people.
This survey is a product of work
conducted by the Green Sports Alliance,
EPA’s ENERGY STAR program, the
Department of Energy and the National
Institute of Building Sciences.

MASSIVE SPORTS STADIUMS provide an exciting opportunity to learn more
about energy and water efficiency with crowds of this scale. The survey will
eventually lead to greater efficiency in stadiums and arenas across the country.
