Michigan Battle of the Buildings announced that the Fifth Third Financial Center in DeWitt, Michigan, was a 2022 Biggest Loser in the Financial Institution Category with a 32.05% reduction.

Over 1,500 buildings representing almost 269 million square feet of Michigan commercial real estate competed against each other in 2022 in this biggest loser-styled energy competition. The competitors tracked energy consumption and worked to reduce their energy in various ways—ranging from the education of building occupants to employing highly efficient technology. There were 11 industry-specific categories and winners.

Fifth Third Bank DeWitt was awarded as a 2022 biggest loser at the ninth annual Michigan Energy Summit on April 18, 2023. The full day event was held at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, Michigan and included breakout sessions, panel discussions and exhibitors of some of the top leading energy professionals.
