Facility Managers Become the Energy Maestros of Future Eco-Districts
New strategies for energy management emerge constantly as engineers, designers, and facility managers respond to limited resources, rising energy costs, and environmental impacts. While the need to do better with less on a building-by-building basis is a step in the right direction, the future of energy management and a sustainable lifestyle lies in tackling the issues on a much larger scale – a leap toward the eco-district.
