Efficiency of buildings increase, with a focus on facility managers
from Scott E. Rupp
In 2010, the U.S. building sector generated 45 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions in the country — that's right, nearly half of all carbon emissions came from the places Americans live, shop and work in every day. Much of this is because of the fact that residential and commercial buildings use 75 percent of all electricity produced in the U.S., for lighting, pumping, heating and cooling. However, new construction projects (and some retrofits) are finally addressing concerns in the building process.
