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:
- Creating increased awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency and training programs.
- Improving operations and maintenance programs.
- Reducing load for energy.
- Installing energy-efficient technologies, as appropriate.
This topic includes more information about each of these strategies, so be sure to check them all out.
