MILWAUKEE, Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls Chairman and CEO Alex Molinaroli is addressing how technological, economic and geopolitical changes will affect the future of energy at the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, Jan. 21. Molinaroli is one of six panelists covering the topics of energy prices and environmental regulations in a session titled "The New Energy Context."
"Energy efficiency and energy demand response are the most cost effective and least expensive energy resources the world has," said Molinaroli. "The Johnson Controls 2014 Energy Efficiency Indicator survey showed 70 percent of U.S. organizations surveyed participate in some sort of energy demand response program with their utility or service providers as one strategy to reduce carbon emissions, reduce costs and increase capacity."
