70% of Energy Institute members want greater investment in efficiency

Over 70 per cent of Energy Institute (EI) members believe investment in improving the energy efficiency of buildings and industrial processes should be increased, according to a recent survey.

The figures were released in the EI’s 2016 Energy Barometer survey, which polled members about energy efficiency and its importance within the sector.

Not surprisingly, more than two-thirds of those questioned believed that energy efficiency was the best measure for achieving the UK’s target of reducing carbon emissions by 80 per cent based on 1990 levels.

Respondents cited technology and equipment upgrades, controls and smart systems and behaviour change as the three greatest opportunities for reducing energy use in industrial processes.
