Energy Efficiency is a $60 Billion Opportunity

According to a recent study by ESource, energy efficiency could become a $60 billion opportunity.

The study found that businesses waste a collective $60 billion a year, or 30% of the power consumed by U.S. industrial and commercial facilities.

The report goes on to look at the details of certain industries including restaurants, health care, data centers, and government.

Energy efficiency is sometimes called the “fifth fuel” after coal, oil, nuclear, and renewables. But energy efficiency deserves better than co-equal status, as its side effects are small. After all, “the cleanest and cheapest energy is the energy that we don’t use.”
