DOE's Better Buildings Challenge saved us almost $2 billion

The Department of Energy has a habit of creating challenges to improve energy efficiency. Back in 1995 they offered up the Golden Carrot to improve refrigerators. More recently their Better Buildings Challenge (to improve energy efficiency in residential, public and commercial buildings) saved us all around $1.9 billion.

Here's a link to their report...
