Washington, D.C. — The Energy Cost Savings Council -- comprised of electrotechnology manufacturers, industry associations, and other interested organizations -- promotes the bottom-line benefits of retrofitting commercial and industrial buildings with energy-efficient electrotechnology products. The ECSC shows how retrofitting can save money, promotes technologies and techniques that will allow building owners and decision makers to save an average of $1 per square foot, and acts as a clearinghouse for information on new electrotechnologies. Its online technology showroom demonstrates how efficient technologies (such as lighting, light bulbs, ballasts, and energy-efficient motors) can improve energy performance and save money. The Web site also contains case studies from commercial, retail, hospital, hospitality, and industrial settings.
