Almost a third (30%) of the average energy used in U.S. commercial buildings is wasted.According to a report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on average, U.S. commercial buildings waste 30% of the energy they use. However, ENERGY STAR®, a voluntary program launched by the EPA, states that it’s often possible to reduce energy use by as much as 10% with little or no cost. And that’s without overhauling processes or doing renovation!
Things like adjusting lighting systems, using automation and retro commissioning, for example, are just a few things that can all help you – as a commercial building manager or owner – to get some easy wins, reduce overall energy consumption and start using your energy more efficiently. Incredibly important as the cost of energy rises and regulations become stricter!
