The 2011 Building Energy Challenge consists of ten E&G buildings competing in 4 categories, as well as the thirteen UHDS Residence Halls and four cooperative houses.  The division of buildings into categories is an attempt to normalize inequalities between the buildings' innate base energy load.  The buildings are listed below.
