Energy Efficient Talk

August 17, 2012

Why isn’t energy efficiency routinely at the top of the national energy discussion? This was the question panelists sought to answer during a recent lecture series presentation by New York Times’ senior energy reporter Matt Wald.

Part of the discussion was Institute for Building Efficiency (IBE) which recently published a report about the growing private sector interest in cutting energy waste, and in making commercial buildings operate more cleanly. The report found that “over 60 percent of global respondents said their organizations were investing in energy efficiency.”

Wald, who has much experience in covering energy efficiency issues, discussed how efficiency is good for us, but it’s difficult to follow through. He equated energy efficiency with flossing, “it’s a wonderful idea but it’s hard to get people to do it.”

The bigger question though is how can we not become energy efficient? There are many examples of how converting to energy efficiency can benefit building owners in reducing energy use and costs. It really becomes not a matter of if energy efficiency will benefit us, but when.
