A report that tracks the energy use of New York City's largest buildings has been released. This article provides details about which buildings are achieving higher-than-expected energy efficiency, such as the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, as well as those that fail to make the grade, such as the LEED Gold-certified 7 World Trade Center and the MetLife Building. "Some scores will not be flattering, but identifying buildings with the most opportunity to improve is a big part of driving energy savings," said Andrew Burr, a performance expert at the Institute for Market Transformation.
