2011 Energy Efficiency Indicator Global Survey Results
To help accelerate the transformation to a more energy efficient and sustainable built environment, it is critical to understand the priorities and challenges facing executive decision makers. The annual Energy Efficiency Indicator (EEI) survey asks executives responsible for energy use and real estate decisions about their management practices, investment plans, technology integration and financing approaches. The survey provides a unique perspective on the market through the lens of those on the front lines making public and commercial building decisions.
The survey reaches a balanced mix of CEOs, CFOs, real estate executives, facility managers and engineers, and sustainability managers in organizations from small sole proprietorships to global corporations with properties totaling tens of millions of square feet. The survey covers a broad array of industry sectors: government, education, real estate, healthcare, finance, manufacturing, retail, life sciences, engineering, construction, and more.
The 2011 Energy Efficiency Indicator is the fifth annual survey, the second with a global scope, and the largest to date in geography and number of respondents. It was conducted online by the Johnson Controls Institute for Building Efficiency in partnership with the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and the Urban Land Institute (ULI). The survey was promoted through more than 30 key associations, covered 13 countries on six continents, offered in eight languages, and drew nearly 4,000 responses.
