The cost of energy consumption can comprise up to 19 percent of your building’s total operating expenditures. If you’re looking for ways to decrease your building’s energy consumption, we can help. Our list of quick, low-cost/no cost energy saving tips will help you manage your energy consumption this summer.
Some of the benefits of energy efficient buildings are reduced operating expenses, increased revenue and asset value and greater competitive differentiation. However, not all benefits are tangible, such as increased employee productivity and an enhanced corporate sustainability image.
The increased drive for energy efficiency is also due in large part to a greater commitment to sustainability from Millennials, generally defined as those born after 1980 and before 2002. The Pew Research Center estimates that by 2020, Millennials will represent 50% of the United States’ workforce. It is important, therefore, for businesses to embrace energy efficiency and develop a comprehensive energy strategy to capitalize on this fast-growing trend.
