Looking for resources to share with your jurisdiction’s commercial partners on the opportunities and the value of commercial building energy efficiency? Take a look at the U.S. Department of Energy video, below. The video provides a quick description of how the whole building approach to new buildings can save up to 70% of a building’s energy use. A high-performance building is profiled, showing how energy efficient lighting systems and daylighting design, efficient windows and building envelope, and solar PV south-facing panels work together to save and generate energy.
The video also reviews energy efficiency in existing buildings through retrofits.
