and U.S. Buildings require 40% of U.S. energy
then U.S. buildings use 10% of global energy,
a tremendous opportunity for savings.
In the United States, buildings account for:
- 40 percent of total energy use
- 71 percent of total electricity consumption
- 60 percent of total non-industrial waste generation
- 54 percent of total natural gas use
- 38 percent of total carbon dioxide emissions
- 12 percent of the total water consumption
