According to the experts, one of the findings was that entrepreneurs are also unclear about the difference between energy efficiency and alternative energy.

“They are familiar with the concepts but don’t apply them much,” said Salas.

Salas added that. for many people thing energy efficiences as being behavioural changes like teaching their employees to turn off lights when not being used, but few go beyond that to learn about the technology.

Another finding was that only 24% of the interviewed have in their business someone responsible to evaluate the monthly energy consumption and take action.
