What We Don’t Know about Energy Efficiency: A Note from the Editorial Staff at EnergyEfficiencyMarkets.com

Sept. 24, 2013
There is something important that the staff of EnergyEfficiencyMarkets.com needs to know. Who are you, dear reader? Please take our survey.

We know a fair amount about energy efficiency. But there is something important we don’t know, and we hope you’ll help us.

First, what do we know?

Take a look around EnergyEfficiencyMarkets.com, and you’ll get a sense of what we’re about.

This week we posted an article about Obama’s progress getting 40 GW of new combined heat and power installed in the US. We wrote about Opower’s latest efforts influencing human behavior so that we save more energy. And we examined which cities offer the best opportunity for those in the energy efficiency industry, based on a scorecard released by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.

Not to brag, but it’s pretty interesting stuff.  No other site focuses solely on the energy efficiency business, as we do.

But there is something we don’t know, and it’s bothering us a lot. You can help.

We don’t who you are, dear reader.

EnergyEfficiencyMarkets.com is a new business-to-business site with many different visitors. We want to tailor our coverage to the areas of energy efficiency most important to you.

So we’ve created a survey to learn more. Would you please take a few minutes to answer the questions? It’s really, really short, and you might win an iPad. Most important, it will fine-tune our editorial coverage to the topics that you want us to cover. You can find the survey here. Thank you for your feedback! We look forward to getting to know you better. — The Editorial Staff
