Johnson Controls, Inc., the global leader in energy efficiency and sustainability, and the International Facility Management Association will release the results of the third annual Energy Efficiency Indicator (EEI) on May 6 at 10 a.m. (CST) via Webcast.

This annual research report is based on a survey of more than 1,400 North American business leaders who are responsible for energy efficiency. The 2009 EEI Webcast will reveal how events from the past year have impacted the management of energy within their facilities, including financing strategies, expected return-on-investment, and their outlook on building efficiency trends.

Highlights from the 2009 EEI results include:

  • Energy efficiency remains strong despite the economic situation. More than 70 percent of respondents are paying more attention to energy efficiency now than they were in 2008.
  • Eighty-five percent of executives believe significant legislation mandating energy efficiency and/or carbon reduction is likely within the next two years, up from 76 percent in 2008.
  • Forty-five percent of business leaders say improving energy efficiency in their buildings is their top strategy to meet carbon reduction commitments.

Who will be on the Webcast?

  • C. David Myers, vice president and president of Building Efficiency, Johnson Controls
  • Don Albinger, vice president of renewable energy, Johnson Controls
  • Clay Nesler, vice president of global energy and sustainability, Johnson Controls
  • Don Young, vice president of communications, IFMA

Several leading companies will also present their responses to the 2009 EEI report and live question and answer sessions for media participants will be incorporated into the Webcast.
