Business is both uniquely suited to address the problems of energy efficiency and to reap the potential rewards of those solutions, if it is able to meld social and profit constraints into a plan for an innovative energy future. The purpose of this Module is to discuss energy efficiency as a strategic solution rather than a defensive reaction, and to present ways to manage challenges and make the most of opportunities at this intersection of business and society.
