  • Buildings consume approximately half of all the energy used in the USA and 75% of all electricity. Fossil fuels supply 76% of the energy consumed by these
  • buildings.*
  • Building energy retrofits (applying EE measures to existing buildings):
  • Reduces Energy Consumption
  • Saves owners money
  • Reduces CO2 emissions**
  • Scaling retrofits could mitigate more than 600 million metric tons of CO2 per year (or about 10% of US emissions)
  • Creates new jobs**
  • Increased building retrofits could create more than 3.3 million new cumulative job years in the US economy.
