  • Obama, energy efficiency & accountability

    Not once, but twice President Obama mentioned the importance of energy efficiency in his state of the union address January 27. His support for the resource is no surprise; his administration has channeled $20 billion toward energy savings programs. Obama made clear that going into his second year his support will not waver.“I know that there are those who disagree with the overwhelming ...

  • Institutional energy intensity

    Institutions, specifically higher learning centers like universities and colleges use a considerable amount of energy to operate their facilities, as well as supporting the academic curriculum. The larger the square footage, and more northern or southern the climate the more interest there is in conservation. Every institution maintains rigorous sustainability initiatives which have a high impact ...

  • Energy efficiency without trying (and with)

    John Lennon wrote that life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.  Apparently, the same is true of energy efficiency. Energy savings happen when we’re busy doing other things – Internet-based things specifically. We use email, bank online and download music not to save energy, but to make life easier and more interesting.  Energy efficiency is a ...
