Building Up SME Energy Productivity   On their own, SMEs don’t consume huge amounts of energy. But collectively, their energy demand is a different story. The IEA estimates SMEs consume around 13% of total global energy demand (that’s 74 exajoules for those keeping track). Yet, approximately 30% of that demand could be eliminated by cost-effective energy efficiency measures, such as implementing energy management software. That would save more energy than Japan and Korea consume in a year!
