{Lead By Example Logo}  

Connecticut agencies Lead by Example through proper energy data management and energy saving projects. Ensuring energy use and cost avoidance in the future helps our state meet its energy and climate goals.

Reports and Documents

DEEPís Office of Energy Demand recently published the 2018 Annual LBE Legislative Report outlining the accomplishments and path forward for CTís Lead by Example program. View Past Legislative Reports or DEEP's recent LBE Presentation.

Benchmarking Energy Use

Accurate benchmarking enables DEEP to develop a baseline to compare data year over year. It also allows us to identify the highest energy use and cost buildings for strategic cost-saving projects. Learn more about state benchmarking.

Financing Energy Management Projects

Since 2012, LBE investments have resulted in over 200 energy-saving projects across state facilities and roughly $6.2 million in annual cost savings. Discover financing options for your agency.
