Energy efficiency: global awareness on the riseGlobally, cost reduction is the predominant driver for investments in the adoption of energy efficiency in business facilities. According to 2017 Johnson Controls Energy Efficiency Indicator (EEI) survey, over 1,500 facility and management executives in the United States, Canada and 10 other countries indicated that 70% of organisations are paying more attention to energy efficiency compared to a year ago. As we see the steady rise in the cost of electricity, this is driving businesses and consumers to look towards technology that delivers energy efficiency. Energy storage is gaining momentum as well, with 48% of organisations planning to make investments in the next year. "Smart, sustainable buildings served by distributed energy resources and energy storage can provide the added security that building owners are looking for around the globe," Rushing said.
