Energy Conservation: Time to care again - even if we don’t want to

On June 2, President Obama and the EPA announced the Clean Power Plan proposal aimed at reducing carbon pollution emissions from power generators by more than 30% compared to 2005 levels. shutterstock_64949560

On June 23, the US Supreme Court supported the majority of the plan, meaning the EPA can require greenhouse-gas controls on power plants and other large stationary sources of pollution. (See NYTimes.com: Justices Uphold Emission Limits on Big Industry)

Since the US gets 40% of its energy from coal generated power plants, the EPA plan and subsequent Supreme Court ruling suggests we’re all going to feel the impact – in our own pockets and on our corporate income statements.

Embark on the Energy Management Maturity Journey

Posted by Mark Strobel

Mar 4, 2014 9:00:00 AM

How mature is your company when it comes to energy management?  Is it something you’ve ever considered?  If you haven’t, you’re not alone.

The path to energy maturity often begins with little or no knowledge of energy consumption, conservation or sustainability.  Less energy mature companies may consider the extent of conservation to be replacing incandescent bulbs with energy efficient CFLs, adjusting the thermostat and turning off lights and equipment when not in use.

For the leaders in energy management, energy efficiency is a way of life, a key element of corporate identity and valued as a significant competitive advantage.

Have you seen the headlines about the severe drought the western half of the US is having?

Don’t assume these water shortages won’t impact your business. Do you realize it’s not only the west, but populations all across the country who are being impacted by the water supply?

Several cities, including some you wouldn’t expect such as Cleveland, Atlanta, and Washington D.C. are predicted to experience severe water shortages in the not too distant future according to studies from Columbia University Water Center and NOAA's Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES).

It’s not just agriculture and the fishing and gaming industry that’s being impacted.  According to an article by Bettina Boxall in the LA Times (1/31/2014), “for the first time ever, the State Water Project that helps supply a majority of Californians may be unable to make any deliveries except to maintain public health and safety.”
