Green Buildings

Facts:

  •  Residential and commercial buildings consume 39 percent of total U.S. energy. That is MORE than the transportation sector, and MORE than the industry sector.
  •  Buildings account for 53 percent of our primary consumption of natural gas — and 71 percent of our electricity consumption.
  •  In the commercial buildings sector alone, the annual electric power bill exceeds $100 billion. When you look at the trend line in natural gas prices, as well as the pressures to slow peak electric demand growth in many communities, it is clear that return on investments in increased energy efficiency of Buildings (Commercial and Residential) will be large — not only in savings for today's homeowners and businesses, but in the aggregate for our nation, paying recurring dividends of enhanced security and prosperity for future generations.
