Helping Businesses Meet Energy Standards
Governmental agencies have worked in recent years to put out new energy iniatives aimed at decreasing our use of energy and utilizing cleaner energy source. These initiatives are largely due to increased awareness about the amount of energy we use and its negative impact on the environment. Initiatives like these are quickly gaining support on an international level, but businesses often find it challenging to figure out how to adjust to meet new energy goals.
The Better Buildings Initiative
The Better Buildings Initiative is a federal energy usage initiative that proposed a challenge for businesses, universities, and state and local government leaders to meet several goals. These goals include 20% in energy savings over a period of ten years. Organizations and companies alike have taken up the challenge, and the federal government has also committed to leading by example. The federal government set a goal for itself to reach by 2025. The goal includes a 40% reduction in GHG emissions, 30% increase in the use of renewable electricity, and improving building efficiency by 25%.
