Industrial firms that are being asked to conserve energy and look at ways of keeping the energy grids less-taxed are still missing the mark. While industry executives believe that energy efficiency benefits them and their customers, not much is being done currently to ensure that energy efficiency is achieved in factories and plants all over the world.
While executives want to make changes to their energy usage, they have faced barriers, in their eyes, to making sure that their companies are being as efficient as possible.
Most businesses think that they have three main barriers to changing their energy efficiency. First, the companies do not believe they have actionable information to use in upgrades of their plants. Second, they do not see how it benefits their bottom line. Finally, they feel as though they do not have the funds to put into infrastructure changes within their business.
If the industries are serious about energy efficiency, something must be done, and it must happen soon.
