February 18, 2016 By Carl Weinschenk

What happens when teams of energy efficiency professionals from completely different industries drop by and check out the energy efficiency the other’s operation?

According to Randy Gaines, the Vice President of Operations and New Business Development for Hilton Worldwide, the answer is that plenty of learning goes on.

Gaines’ team and its opposite number at a San Francisco Whole Foods Market recently spent time examining each other’s facilities and operations. The program, which is part of the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge, takes a fun approach to a process that Gaines thinks could prove valuable if made a regular part of energy efficiency initiatives.

Gaines chatted this week with Carl Weinschenk, Energy Manager Today’s Managing Editor.
