Participants agree to cut their energy usage by 20% over a period of 10 years, complete at least one showcase energy efficiency project, and share data on energy performance within their portfolio of buildings and information on their implementation models for energy efficiency. In return, they receive technical assistance and guidance on energy efficiency approaches to help them meet their goals.
ANSI EESCC Advances Energy Efficiency Work in the Built Environment
Following the release of the roadmap, the EESCC has begun a phase of activity focused seeking action on the roadmap's recommendations.

The nineteen new Better Building Challenge partners are the first organizations involved in the initiative to focus on energy efficiency in connection with their operation of data centers. All the new members oversee data centers currently consuming more than 90 megawatts of power and have agreed to make use of increased energy efficiency to reduce their energy use by 20%.
The ANSI members announcing their participation in this initiative are:
In addition, ANSI member the DOE funds new Better Buildings Challenge participants the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Argonne National Laboratory, the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Environmental Molecular Science Laboratory (EMSL).
