  4. 4. Global Energy Environment is Dynamic World energy consumption Urbanization projected to grow 60% by 2030 Drive for Competitiveness Regulatory Compliance Source: Energy Information Administration An unprecedented global energy and operating environment 4 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  5. 5. Buildings Have a Huge Carbon Footprint 79% % of carbon emissions attributed to existing buildings <30% But still 30% significant 30% New York U.S. World Buildings are the single largest contributor to global warming 5 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  6. 6. Why Energy Efficiency as an Energy Resource? Energy Efficiency and Conservation Improvements Since 1973 Have Reduced Annual Energy Consumption by 52 Quads in 2008 Energy Efficiency and Conservation 52 Petroleum 37 Natural Gas 24 Coal 22 Nuclear Electric Power 8 Biomass 4 Conventional Hydroelectric 2 Geothermal, Solar and Wind 1 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 Quads Energy Efficiency and Conservation 2008 Domestic Production Net Imports Compared to other energy to Save Energy, June 2009 efficiency measures are: Alliance resources, energy Energy efficiency is clean, secure (homegrown) and quicker to develop than other sources of energy 6 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  7. 7. Executive Survey Uncovers Issues withImplementing Energy Efficiency Programs • Partnership with Economist Intelligence Unit • Focus on C-level and senior execs ‒ 278 execs surveyed, wide range of industries, worldwide • Included online surveys and interviews with leading organizations including: ‒General Electric ‒Tata Motors ‒Carbon Trust Standard Co. ‒World Resources Institute Because energy efficiency programs require C-suite leadership, funding and commitment – their perceptions are important 7 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  8. 8. Dilemma: Energy Efficiency and Strategy • Nearly 80% of executives say energy efficiency will be more important to their business in 5 years yet only 26% have ever done an energy audit • 61% of non C-level execs said their organization does not do enough to integrate energy efficiency into its strategy Companies see value but struggle with implementation 8 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  9. 9. Responsibility Must be Assigned AcrossOrganization • Energy efficiency still perceived to be the CEO’s job • Companies must appoint a respected owner and drive accountability throughout the organization • Successful initiatives often have senior leaders driving the campaign – not necessarily the CEO ‒ Only 20% say an energy efficiency manager or EHS manager is responsible for energy efficiency Few have dedicated sustainability staff or energy management experts 9 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  10. 10. Companies Lack Measurement, Expertise • Measurement helps monitor usage and equipment efficiency, identify cost savings ‒ Only 26% of organizations have conducted an energy audit ‒ 15% audited by a third party ‒ 22% do no measurement at all • With a proactive maintenance approach – including energy audits – companies can better gauge energy usage and track the efficiency of their equipment Lack of expertise may hinder companies’ progress Lack of in-house expertise hinders many companies’ progress 10 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  11. 11. Companies View Regulation Positively • Business leaders generally see benefit of regulations ‒ Large companies believe they level the playing field and create new markets • 69% believe companies are only meeting the “minimum” required by policy – room for improvement exists • Almost 75% believe taxpayers need to bear some of the cost of energy efficiency strategies Building owners welcome policy and incentives that Companies welcome policies that enhance ROI of enhanceefficiency measuresinitiatives ROI of efficiency 11 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  12. 12. Energy Efficiency Seen as an Internal Issue • Only a fraction of respondents are working with their suppliers “In the present model of ‒ 8% said energy efficiency is a manufacturing automobile units, priority for suppliers 70-80% is outsourced. ‒ 4% are working with their suppliers on energy efficiency So it’s not enough for us to measure our carbon footprint. We need to also measure the carbon footprint of • However, this is changing our suppliers.” ‒ Wal-Mart said it will require suppliers to disclose their -A.S. Puri, Vice President , Tata Motors environmental impact Pressure mounts for vendor participation in energy initiatives 12 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  13. 13. Practices and Policies Drive Changed Practices • Make energy efficiency and sustainability part of business strategy • Assign responsibility across the organization • Look to vendors to capture carbon footprint Policies • Change standards and codes to drive minimums up • Develop incentives to encourage incremental investment that meets all stakeholders’ needs “For a long time, people thought it was all about technology. But what we’re learning is that, really, it’s all about people. How do you get people to do something differently?” Gwen Ruta Director & Vice President for Corporate Partnerships Environmental Defense Fund 13 Green Building Focus Conference 2011
  14. 14.
