Although the author dedicates just one of his six bullet points to energy efficiency, the concept is central to most of his predictions. He foresees cities and states continuing to lead the way, demanding buildings meet strict EE requirements; carbon pricing becoming more popular; proptech continuing its rise; big data helping with EE; and companies staying the course with their EE plans despite recent rollbacks in the U.S. These predictions don't seem farfetched, it's no secret our economy has gotten more efficient in recent decades—we really are getting more from less. I just hope legislators play their part too.
