Energy-Efficiency Spending to Grow in 2010, Survey Finds

Spending on energy efficiency is projected to grow as the economy improves and businesses ramp up capital spending, according to the latest energy-efficiency snapshot from Johnson Controls Inc.  The company surveyed more than 1,400 executives in North America about energy costs, carbon-mitigation plans and energy-efficiency spending trends for its annual Energy Efficiency Indicator.  The survey found that improving energy efficiency in buildings is by far the biggest priority for business owners and energy managers as a way to reduce carbon emissions. But other factors are also driving interest in energy efficiency, including projections of higher energy costs. On average, those surveyed say energy prices will rise 7 percent in 2010.  4/20 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
