Here is a sneak peek:
Maximizing energy efficiency, and savings is a major challenge for enterprise facilities. U.S. commercial buildings are one of the biggest culprits of energy consumption and waste.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, commercial buildings spend $190 billion in energy costs every year and use 35% of the electricity consumed in the U.S. To make matters worse, on average 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted.
Fortunately, there are ways to substantially reduce energy consumption and decrease energy loss if you know how to maximize energy efficiency, and thus cost savings through a holistic energy efficiency approach.
The U.S. is lagging behind other world economies when it comes to energy efficiency. According to the most recent International Energy Efficiency Scorecard, the United States ranked 10th out of 25 of the world’s largest energy users. This may be a surprising statistic to some, given the energy efficiency resources available to U.S. companies and the proven benefits of switching to energy-efficient technologies.
Outdated technology drains electricity and operates inefficiently, creating a high amount of energy waste. Older U.S. commercial buildings are loaded with archaic technologies that contribute to steep electricity bills and unsafe/unhealthy conditions for employees.
There is no quicker and more affordable way to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions than through energy efficiency solutions.
Not only can businesses save money from going green but they can reap additional benefits, including improving the quality of life for employees, boosting productivity and quality control, and promoting economic growth.
There is no doubt U.S. businesses can save a substantial amount of money on energy costs and reduce their carbon footprints by switching to energy-efficient technologies, yet the adoption rate has been slow due to several factors, one of the most prominent ones being lack of knowledge.
Commercial facilities often implement the wrong energy-efficient technology that does not generate enough cost savings or does not take a holistic approach into account. The energy efficiency solutions industry is inundated with gimmicky products and ineffective technologies.
To fully realize the benefits of an energy-efficient commercial building retrofit, installing one solution isn’t the answer – a combination of proven energy-saving solutions is the way to maximize energy efficiency and savings.
