For office buildings alone, that translates to a huge chunk of the annual operating budget — nearly 30 percent. So, how can commercial buildings maximize their energy spend?

If located in a deregulated market, they can begin by selecting a well-rounded energy supplier that helps them cost-effectively meet and manage their energy needs.
