MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Implementing strategies for energy efficiency in commercial and industrial buildings not only lowers operating costs but has clear benefits for the environment. As 39 percent of electricity is generated by coal, a reduction in energy use in commercial and industrial buildings can substantially reduce carbon emissions.

“Electricity waste adds to operating costs while contributing unnecessary carbon emissions to the environment,” noted Frost & Sullivan Principal Consultant Farah Saeed. “In some facilities, electricity can account for more than 20 percent of overall operating costs equaling up to $240,000 a year for a single site.”
This discovery is signaling a new trend in facilities management. Frost & Sullivan details solutions for energy efficiency in a new article with FMLink, an internet-based facilities management publication.
