We are encouraging our CFS partners to join us. All you have to do is share your energy-saving message on social media on ENERGY STAR Day:
When: Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019 (ALL DAY)
Where: Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
How: Use the hashtag #ENERGYSTARday

ASTM Food Service Equipment Committee Meetings will be held on October 29 and October 30 in Northbrook, IL. For registration information, please visit ASTM’s website, here.
The ENERGY STAR CFS team will be in attendance. Please send an email to Linnea Hofstrom (Linnea.Hofstrom@icf.com) and Brian Ward (Brian.Ward@icf.com) at ICF to schedule any in-person meetings outside of the ASTM F26 Committee Meeting agenda.
2020 ENERGY STAR Award Applications are Available!
The 2020 ENERGY STAR Award Applications are available! Each year the U.S. EPA and the DOE honor organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protect the environment through energy efficiency. Applications are due in early December, so we encourage you to begin preparing as soon as possible! To begin working on your application, please visit the ENERGY STAR website, here.
The ENERGY STAR CFS Team encourages partners to check the My ENERGY STAR Accounts (MESA) tool and confirm the contact information on file is accurate. Updating MESA profiles ensures the program has the correct contacts for outreach and mass mailer notifications. However, please be advised that the new ENERGY STAR MESA platform will be released soon and that your current login information will not work in the new system. No later than October 18th, you will receive an email from @firstname.lastname@example.org containing instructions for setting up your account in the new My ENERGY STAR Account (MESA) platform.
If you have questions or need assistance, please email CommercialFoodService@energystar.gov.
