Greenbiz.com – Inside Microsoft’s living, breathing building

I just read “Inside Microsoft’s living, breathing building” on the Greenbiz.com website and am intrigued by the two adjacent statements in the final sentences of the article:

Office buildings, hotels, stores, schools, hospitals, malls and other such commercial buildings are responsible for up to 40 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. In the U.S. alone, businesses spend about $100 billion on energy every year.

“Buildings have been built and run the same way for the last 30 to 50 years,” Smith says. “This isn’t a Microsoft problem, it’s an industry problem.”

 

I look forward to future of building efficiency!
