With nearly 6 million buildings accounting for 97 billion square feet of floor space, the U.S. commercial sector – including retail, hospitality, commercial real estate, and healthcare industries – is large, diverse, and represents substantial energy savings potential. Businesses are driven to improve their buildings to capture savings and improve their bottom lines, as well as meet the expectations of consumers and employees who increasingly demand better buildings in which to shop, work, and recreate.
