Recently, Energy Efficient Buildings Hub did an experiment. It had an energy audit done on Building 101 in the Navy Yard – its headquarters – from three different companies. The result? Three different results regarding the building’s energy use.
“We’re uncovering that the rules of thumb in [energy efficient] industry vary widely and strategies also vary widely, and that makes it very confusing to a building owner,” EEB Hub Deputy Director Laurie Actman said. “We’re trying to come up with some rules of thumb for the owners so they can be more informed consumers of potential technology and services.”
By 2020, EEB Hub hopes to reduce energy use by 20 percent in the U.S. commercial buildings sector. For more on the story, go to our partner, technicallyphilly.com at https://bit.ly/SNUbyn
