A survey from the Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions shows that businesses are forging a path of energy conservation by targeting average reductions in energy consumption of nearly 25% over a three- to four-year period.
The survey found that nine out of 10 companies have set goals regarding electricity usage and energy management practices, with 66% identifying cost-cutting as their primary motivation and 85% of businesses view reducing electricity costs as essential to staying financially competitive.
While meeting conservation and money saving goals can be difficult, new technologies including smart meters, smart appliances and demand management programs are helping businesses and individuals make smarter choices.
