More Than Tech Needed to Reduce CO2 Footprint of Buildings

Energy efficiency and conservation can have a profound impact on our our energy usage and needs:

“According to the study, many energy efficiency projects are economically feasible at today’s energy costs. A $150 billion annual investment in building energy efficiency in the six markets studied (U.S., EU, Japan, China, India and Brazil) would reduce carbon footprints by 40 percent with a five-year discounted payback, the study found. Doubling that investment could achieve a payback within five and 10 years and would reduce the footprint another 12 percent.”
