Energy efficiency and conservation combined with the relentless pursuit of alternative, renewable power will dominate local, state and national agendas in the coming years. Energy issues will drive our economic recovery, creating jobs and ensuring our future as a world leader. Governments who do the best job with energy will be the ones boosting public and corporate conservation awareness, offering incentives for efficiently-run homes, offices, schools, mass transit and private/company vehicles and they will do their utmost to attract energy infrastructure projects.

The state’s energy productivity – energy consumed compared with economic output – is 68% higher than that of the rest of the country.” *
