(IS-2013-74) 2011 Energy Efficiency indicator: IFMA Partner results
The annual EEi survey was launched in 2007 by Johnson controls and IFMA, it examines building decision-makers’ attitudes, priorities, practices and investment plans related to energy management. In 2011, its fifth consecutive year, the survey reached 3,886 decision makers around the world with responsibility for managing commercial buildings and their energy use. Conducted in March and April 2011 by the institute for Building Efficiency, the survey reached respondents representing many types of buildings on six continents. For the fifth year, IFMA served as a global partner on the survey; members provided the “frontlines” perspective of executives and managers responsible for facilities budgets and energy use in commercial buildings around the world. Comparing 2011 results to those from the previous four years provides an outlook on trends in energy management and insights into the evolution of the energy efficiency marketplace in the face of prolonged economic uncertainty.
