October 2018

Happy Energy Awareness Month! Energy Awareness Month was established in 1991 as a national effort to raise awareness of the importance of sustainably managing the nation's energy resources. Let us help you develop a plan to manage your facility's energy efficiency this month.

Prepare Your Building for Winter Now
No matter what climate or location you live in, winter is coming. The severity, of course, depends on location. Whether you live somewhere where the temperatures only drop slightly, you're seeing frost or keeping an eye out for snow, experts agree now is the time to prepare your building for winter.

Simple Steps to Improved Energy Efficiency Programs
Many facility managers and building owners are failing to make their properties more energy-efficient. A report from the EPA found that 30% of the average energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. If energy efficiency programs are a win-win for companies, what is preventing them from making their properties more energy-efficient?

Smart city development spending is estimated to reach $41 trillion worldwide between 2016 and 2036, including investments in existing infrastructure and implementation of internet of things (IoT) technologies to connect the urban ecosystem. 

Cities are currently consuming more than 65% of the world's energy and are responsible for an even greater percentage of our total emissions.

Before replacing assets - both large and small - check to see if local sustainability initiatives will help pay for an energy efficient alternative. Each program varies, but most of them will provide a combination of grants, rebates and tax exemptions. How many sustainability initiatives are available in your state?
