Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Retrofits Will Surpass $127 Billion in Annual Mar... - 0 views

  • Residential and commercial buildings account for 35 to 40 percent of total energy consumption worldwide.  Commercial buildings, in particular, consume large amounts of energy related to heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, water heating, and other building systems.  Efforts to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions have led to increasing deployments of energy efficiency retrofits for commercial and public buildings.

Global Wind Power Market Declined 20% From 2012 to 2013 - 1 views

  • “The market decline in 2013 was not unexpected,” says Feng Zhao, research director with Navigant Research.  “The aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis still continues to weigh heavily – particularly on some of the European markets that underpin the industry. The U.S. market decline, triggered by lack of policy consistency and the delay in renewing the tax credits which have traditionally stimulated investment, was also a major contributing factor for the wind market depression last year.”
