4 Under Forty honoree Gus Takala touts energy efficiency in EnergyBiz column
The cleanest form of energy is that which isn’t used
As buzz words like “green jobs,” “green power,” “sustainability” and “net zero” have become more commonplace, so too are concerns about green washing and companies living up to their goals and commitments. Fortunately, I can say I am on the front lines, watching change happen daily from one of the greenest jobs possible as an energy management engineer. In this role, I help companies, property managers, small businesses and any other kind of commercial, multi-family or industrial facility manage their energy use. This is typically done through some kind of capital investment in energy efficiency, which, in my opinion, is the cleanest energy resource.
