Smart Efficiency - Energy Productivity

Energy Productivity sounds similar to energy efficiency because it is. However, while “efficiency” emphasizes primarily what we’re reducing, “productivity” offers a more positive angle — connecting directly to bottom-line potential for a company or city get more value out of every BTU.

President Barack Obama galvanized attention around this issue in February 2013, when he challenged U.S. citizens, businesses and communities to double their energy productivity by 2030. Doing so wouldn’t just save $327 billion annually in power bills, it also could create more than 1.3 million jobs, according to an analysis by the Alliance to Save Energy. Plus it could cut carbon dioxide emissions by 33 percent

According to Navigant Research, global government and utility energy efficiency spending is expected to grow from $25.6 billion in 2017 to $56.1 billion in 2026.
