  1. U.S. electrical energy consumption is down by 6% since its peak in 2007, and every year since has shown a year-over-year reduction in per capita consumption. (Electric Power Annual Data Tables, 2012)
  2. For nine straight years, projections of U.S. Building Sector energy consumption -- through the year 2030 -- have declined. (U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook 2014)
  3. The total market for energy efficiency in buildings will reach $103.5 billion by 2017, an increase of more than 50% from the 2011 market value of $67.9 billion. (2011 Pike Research)
  4. People running buildings are “paying a lot more attention” to energy efficiency, with interest increasing by 116% since 2010. (Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey, 2013)
  5. Energy efficiency standards put in place between 1988 and 2006 will deliver up to $241 billion in savings by 2030 across U.S. buildings and homes. (LBNL, 2008)
