The Payoff from a Greener Building Sector
Saving the environment also saves significant money. American consumers have spent $560 billion less on energy from 2005-2013 due to sustainable design and construction. Compared to projections from 2005, the EIA AEO 2014 put savings at $4.61 between 2013 and 2030 – or $6.55 trillion if best available demand technology is employed. Courtesy of Architecture 2030.
