Description (excerpt):

“Deloitte’s new research highlights a number of trends evolving in corporate America – the push to use less power, generate your own and allocate more capital to energy management. But it all likely stems from one simple number: 79% of the survey respondents said they view reducing power costs “as essential to creating and maintaining a competitive advantage.”

The study, conducted through online interviews with 600 companies having more than 250 employees, revealed 57% had formally adopted plans to reduce their energy consumption, a quick rise from 46% in the 2014 study.

Some 55% now generate a portion of their own electricity as well, up from 44% the previous year, and 33% in 2013. That trend is led by technology, media and healthcare companies, the report found.”
