  • Direct incentives for smart energy and sustainability projects

    Implementing actions to be more sustainable or to “go green” are shown to be economically beneficial in a number of ways (see my article on the 9 Purely Business Reasons to Go Green). One thing that holds back many companies from these programs, however, is the upfront costs. Although a smart sustainability program will make back that initial investment and more over time, some ...


  • Selected results of the 1996 IEW Poll of energy projections
