The Hyatt Regency Atlanta received the inaugural Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge Excellence Award for its successful efforts to reduce energy and water consumption since 2009. Maria Vargas, Director of the Better Buildings Challenge for the US Department of Energy, presented the award on behalf of the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge on Wednesday, Nov. 7 during the 10th Annual Downtown Development Day, produced by Central Atlanta Progress.
The Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge, which is celebrating its first anniversary, created the Excellence Award to recognize exceptional reductions in energy and water consumption. Three finalists were selected based on their total energy and water savings since 2009 and the successful implementation of reduction strategies that are applicable to other commercial buildings in the city.
