Key Strategies to Increase Energy Efficiency

What are some key ways to increase energy efficiency?

Once a grantee identifies the largest energy end-uses, it can collaborate with local energy conservation agencies to identify effective strategies to reduce energy consumption in its buildings. These strategies might include:

    1. Creating increased awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency and training programs.
    2. Improving operations and maintenance programs.
    3. Reducing load for energy.
    4. Installing energy-efficient technologies, as appropriate.

This topic includes more information about each of these strategies, so be sure to check them all out.
