The Economics of Energy Efficiency in Buildings
The Peterson Institute released a new study on a central element of the climate change issue: The Economics of Energy Efficiency in Buildings. Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of global energy demand, more than transportation, industry, or any other sector. Hence, buildings will play a critical role in the worldwide effort to limit carbon emissions and deal effectively with global warming.
Trevor Houser, author of the study, presented the findings of this new study. George David, the Chairman and former CEO of United Technologies and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Institute, presented the business perspective on building energy efficiency.
