Adopted in late November, the Law on Energy Efficiency "changed the rules of the game on the market of public services and put many of his participants to rethink their economic priorities. How to live and work in new conditions? Reply to this question will help the experience of those companies who have chosen energy efficiency as a long-term strategy development. With each passing day it becomes increasingly clear that energy efficiency is one of the main trends of the global economy in the xxi century. And utilities can not be an exception.
Moreover, the housing question reduce energy loss is much sharper than in any other sector of the economy, because almost half of all energy resources of developed countries is spent today on the provision of communal needs of their citizens.
