Government Buildings & Facilities Case Studies

Case studies explain what facility managers and governing boards are doing to trim energy use and save money in public buildings. While some techniques for saving energy are common and straightforward, others certainly are not. We encourage you to download these pdfs (portable document format) and share them with friends and colleagues.
