Above + Beyond Volunteer Recognition: Tom Miller

Tom Miller The USGBC-Missouri Gateway is committed to recognizing volunteers who  contribute significantly to the Chapter, devoting time and talents “above and beyond” on a particular project or program. We are happy to recognize Tom Miller of Energy Resources Group.

 

Tom volunteered at numerous hands-on Benchmarking Jams in 2017. He put his benchmarking and energy efficiency expertise to good use helping building owners and managers use ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, understand the results they got from the tool, and consider their next steps for improving building performance.

 

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the energy used by buildings in the United States is responsible for almost 40% of our national greenhouse gas emissions. Locally, we see an even bigger impact. In 2015, buildings accounted for 77% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the City of St. Louis (2015 GHG Inventory).

 

Given their contributions to regional and national greenhouse gas emissions, buildings have a significant role to play in the urgent challenge of climate climate change. Benchmarking is a crucial first step for building owners and managers looking to reduce their costs and their environmental impacts.

 

Volunteers like Tom are a critical part of our work to support all buildings move forward with energy efficiency. Thank you Tom!
