October is National Energy Awareness Month. But how could we not be aware of energy when it’s all around us? Interestingly, we tend to only appreciate energy the most when we lose it. If the power goes out in your business, you likely find that even the most basic tasks become more challenging or even impossible, and productivity comes to a screeching halt.
When you consider our reliance on energy at a national level, however, you begin to understand why the U.S. Office of Electricity (OE) designated an entire month to energy awareness. The OE reminds us that in addition to providing electricity for lighting, heating and cooling, we also rely on energy to power:
- Emergency response services
- Medical care
- Sanitation and clean water systems
- The digital sector
- Production and transportation of goods, food and fuel
Because energy is the lifeline of our entire infrastructure and economy, it’s clear that providing, protecting and preserving it is vitally important—and we all have roles to play.
