The 2012 global Energy Efficiency Indicator (EEI) survey highlights trends and provides new insights into the attitudes and practices of global executives and building owners responsible for energy management and investment decisions in industrial, commercial and public-sector buildings.

The Johnson Controls Institute for Building Efficiency conducts an annual Energy Efficiency Indicator survey tracking the energy priorities, practices and investments being made by executive decision-makers for buildings in markets around the world.

The UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative aims to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030. Efficient buildings are vital to achieving sustainable development because they align economic, social, and environmental objectives, creating triple bottom line benefits.

Fifth annual survey led by the Institute for Building Efficiency, an initiative of Johnson Controls providing information and analysis of technologies, policies, and practices for efficient, high performance buildings and smart energy systems around the world.

As India pursues ambitious plans for sustainable development and equitable growth, energy efficiency is emerging as an important low-cost and available technology resource. Both new and existing buildings provide opportunities to implement energy- and cost-saving measures in the building sector. However, the market for building efficiency remains relatively small.
