Office Buildings

According to the Department of Energy, energy use is the single largest operating expense in office buildings, with 1/3 of the energy consumed being wasted. The cost of maintenance and repairs follows close behind the expense of energy.

The following graph shows the breakdown of energy consumption for the average office building.

Energy Star calculates that a 10 percent decrease in energy use could lead to a 1.5 percent increase in net operating income (NOI), with even more impressive figures as the energy savings grow. Furthermore, Energy Star studies have found that superior energy performance contributes to increased employee productivity and health. A commitment to energy efficiency helps companies achieve their corporate responsibility and sustainability goals.
