In recent years, much attention has been focused on the concept of energy efficiency. Companies of all sizes are prioritizing decarbonization and other energy-saving efforts by creating short- and long-term sustainability plans. One important strategy is for companies to ensure one of their largest assets - their buildings - are energy efficient.
Energy-efficient buildings use less resources to operate the building without compromising comfort or reliable energy output. There are a variety of ways to make help make a building energy efficient, and through thoughtful planning and actions, companies can achieve high energy efficiency through and help to lower energy costs on their buildings.
As we identify characteristics of an energy-efficient building, it is also important to understand where many inefficiencies can be found. Learn more about what causes carbon production in buildings
The best examples of energy-efficient buildings model three (3) key principles:
USE LESS → BUY BETTER → SELF-GENERATE.
When these principles are applied, customers can achieve their sustainability goals by using fewer resources and reducing carbon emissions.
