A recently released report from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) just scored cities across the United States for energy efficiency. Boston remains the top scoring city for energy efficiency, scoring 84.5 out of 100 possible points, which is an improvement of 2.5 points since 2015. This report ranks 51 large U.S. cities across five key areas for saving energy; 1) local government operation, 2) community-wide initiatives, 3) buildings policies, 4) energy and water utilities and 5) transportation policies.

Marty Walsh, Mayor of Boston, said: “Being recognized as America’s most energy-efficient city is an accomplishment that should be shared by all Bostonians. Whether you’re a resident who lowered their monthly utility bill through Renew Boston or an owner of one of our city’s leading green buildings, we should all be proud of our success to reduce energy and save money.”

As owner of one of these sustainable buildings in Boston, Fraunhofer CSE is extremely proud to contribute to this high score.

The following cities round out the top ten most energy efficient in the U.S.:

(#2) New York City
(#3) Seattle
(tied for #4) Los Angeles and Portland, OR
(#6) Austin
(#7) Chicago
(#8) Washington, DC
(tied for #9) Denver and San Francisco
