Energy efficiency is one of the top priorities in glass manufacturing. Much has been written and said about the role which energy efficiency can play in the evolution of the entire glass industry. However, many glass manufacturers, especially in the developing world, lag behind their developed partners. They face considerable difficulties in their way to adopting energy-efficient technologies and systems. Just a month ago, specialists at Home glass repair Chandler learned that all commercial buildings owners in San Francisco would have to send their annual energy costs/ benchmarks, in order to comply with the Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance. In other words, all owners of commercial buildings in San Francisco would have to report the amount of energy they use during one calendar year, as part of their compliance with the city’s energy efficiency requirements. The goal of the proposed change is to promote greater accountability and efficiency of energy use in commercial organizations. The new requirement is actually a form of regular audit for all owners of commercial buildings which, as expected, will motivate these owners to become more efficient in their energy uses.
In reality, the goal of the proposed mandatory energy audits is much more complicated and far-reaching. The city authorities expect that mandatory audits would boost the use of energy-efficient glass in commercial buildings. Home glass repair Chandler believes that it is a good incentive for buildings larger than 10,000 square meters to take advantage of energy-efficient glass. Certainly, the costs of using energy-efficient glass cannot be totally disregarded, and most commercial buildings owners will, most probably, argue against the new requirement. However, in the era of sustainability and environmental protection, energy-efficient glass can become a productive long-term measure aimed at reducing the costs of energy and the damages caused to the environment.
