The largest-ever survey to assess energy-savings measures used in commercial real estate has been launched by Washington, D.C.-based BOMA Intl., Potomac, MD-based FMLink, the Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Green Building Council, and the Reston, VA-based Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE).
The survey results will help companies identify their "best bets" for energy efficiency - which strategies worked well, which didn't, and why. The survey is open to those who own or manage their facilities; commercial, industrial, government, academic, medical, and other types of non-residential facilities; and facilities that have been occupied prior to Jan. 1, 2007.
The survey will close Sept. 22, and the estimated time needed to complete the survey is 30 minutes. Respondents will be asked to address energy savings practices and products within a single building. For participating, respondents will receive complimentary issues of BOMA's checklist, "30 Ways to Save Energy," and USGBC's "Energy Performance for LEED for New Construction Buildings" report.
