How to Better Manage Your Company’s Utility Bills - HBR
In general, managing energy bills has traditionally been a pretty low priority for most corporations. For all but a few process-focused companies or those with energy-intensive facilities such as data centers, the utility bill is generally filed under the list of uncontrollable, take-it-or-leave-it costs of doing business. Outside the hot topic of who gets to control the thermostat, most managers just want to know that the lights will turn on and the computer servers will not be interrupted.

How the smart grid makes buildings more sustainable -
Buildings consume significant amounts of energy. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) in the Department of Energy (DOE) reported that buildings accounted for 72 percent of total U.S. electricity consumption in 2006 and this number will rise to 75 percent by 2025. This is split almost 50/50 between commercial and residential buildings.

Energy Efficiency: The Pot of Gold Hidden Under the Floorboards - NREI Readers Write
There are two major factors that are influencing the role of energy efficiency in commercial property transactions. The first is recent policies that mandate disclosure of energy performance (typically in the form of an Energy Star score) by a property seller to the buyer/lessee/lender at time of sale. The second is the ever-increasing body of research that is connecting higher energy performance with higher rents, occupancy rates, and asset value.
