A new study from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) found that increased energy efficiency will contribute to a slowing of the annual growth rate of U.S. energy consumption for the next 20 years (which averages out to about 0.3 percent annually).
The report laid out 30 different cases of how U.S. energy consumption will change through 2035. The most likely scenario references how energy generated by grow between 10-15 percent during that time.
More importantly, the report cited existing federal and state energy requirements and incentives as playing a continuing role in more efficient technologies. Further reductions could happen with the help of new federal and state policies as well.
If the report is accurate, more and more businesses and commercial building owners will benefit from the change. Our list of clients are already seeing savings on their lighting upgrades, see if your business is qualified by scheduling a facility review today.
