Buildings Consume More Energy Than Any Other Sector.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) now reports that, in coming years, Building Sector energy consumption will grow faster than that of industry and transportation. Between 2010 and 2030, the EIA reports, total Building Sector energy consumption will increase by 5.85 Quadrillion Btu (QBtu). Industry will grow by 4.01 QBtu and Transportation by 3.15 QBtu. To put these projections into perspective, 1 QBtu is equal to the delivered energy of thirty-seven 1000-MW nuclear power plants, or 235 coal-fired power plants at 200-MW each.
