I haven't ranted much lately about energy efficiency for the simple reason that it's becoming widely adopted and its saving a lot of energy. The eco-activists are still unhappy. I've even read some VC complaining bitterly that people are spending their money on energy efficiency rather than the VC's new alternative energy thing.
Press coverage is rare because the buyers are doing this to save money, so why waste money on PR efforts? Sometimes you do get energy control companies that think the PR is worthwhile, especially for famous buildings. But most of the saving is from small renovations and replacement of facilities and equipment. Those don't make the news.
So it was nice to see the net effect is large enough that it now sometimes makes the news.
