Webinar: The $80 Billion Energy Savings Opportunity for Commercial and Industrial Energy Users
Commercial and industrial (C&I) organizations in the U.S. spend an estimated $260 billion on electricity and natural gas every year. This staggering amount of money spent on meeting the needs of our country’s largest energy users can be reduced by up to $80 billion, a whopping 30% reduction on an annual basis.
This webinar examines how it is we have come to spend such a huge amount of money on energy by looking at the sources of that energy and how it gets used in our commercial and industrial markets.
We will discuss areas where commercial and industrial organizations can start saving some of that $80 Billion by changing the way they use energy. The program concludes with a look at a new business model, Energy-as-a-Service, that redefines the relationship organizations have with energy to help them develop holistic energy programs that will achieve the goal of reaching their energy savings goals.
