Energy Efficiency Importance Rises 116 Percent
Bipartisan support, public goals, private finance push global momentum for energy efficiency
New research by Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, shows energy efficiency interest rose 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use. Momentum is also growing for green-building certification and green-tenant space leasing although many cite a lack of funding and uncertainty over government reform as obstacles to investment.
“We need public policies and private investment to work together to reduce the market’s uncertainty and capture this year’s momentum toward a more energy efficient global economy,” said Dave Myers, president of Johnson Controls Building Efficiency. The Energy Efficiency Indicator is a global survey of more than 3,000 decision makers in 10 countries.
