Have you ever thought about how to create a more energy efficient global economy? The more the weather changes for the drastic and the need for Greener choices are obvious I personally think about it.

New research by Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, shows energy efficiency interest rose 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use. Momentum is also growing for green-building certification and green-tenant space leasing although many cite a lack of funding and uncertainty over government reform as obstacles to investment.
“We need public policies and private investment to work together to reduce the market’s uncertainty and capture this year’s momentum toward a more energy efficient global economy,” said Dave Myers, president of Johnson Controls Building Efficiency. The Energy Efficiency Indicator is a global survey of more than 3,000 decision makers in 10 countries. You can view the

Selected Findings released in June 2013 include:
• 37% of executives said they were paying “a lot more attention” to energy efficiency – the same as in 2012. 

• North American respondents were on par with global respondents on the importance of energy management: 39% said it was “extremely important” to their organizations, compared to 41% globally. 

• The top five drivers of energy efficiency action in North America were energy cost savings, government and utility incentives and rebates, increased asset value, enhanced brand or public image, and energy security (availability, reliability, and security of supply).

• 31% of North American executives identified lack of available capital for projects as the top barrier to energy efficiency. This was followed by inability to meet internal financial criteria (20%) and uncertainty about savings from energy efficiency projects (17%). 

• North America executives reported that they expect advanced lighting technologies and smart building technologies to achieve the greatest increase in market adoption in the next 10 years, followed by advanced building materials and electric and plug-in vehicles.
