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.
"Commercial and industrial organizations face mounting pressure to control operating costs and minimize harm to the environment," said Saeed. "By utilizing these strategies, facilities managers can mitigate environmental concerns while combating the rising costs of energy."
Frost & Sullivan and FMLink, a reputable source for a gamut of topics ranging from information technology to energy efficiency in relation to facilities management, collaborate to provide valuable, data packed insights via a newly formed partnership.
"FMLink is particularly excited to add this special Frost & Sullivan section of FMLink, which is dedicated to providing FMLink's facilities management readership original research to help them in their quest to address the challenges they face to help their facilities perform more effectively in this rapidly changing global marketplace," exclaimed Peter S.
