Author Biography

I feel very privileged for the opportunity to bring this incredible resource to life.
It was an immense undertaking; a challenge I feel very proud of accomplishing and a tangible result of countless hours of dedication and study to mastering an industry most don’t understand but all are affected by every day.
The biggest challenge was “translating” a very technical and indigestible amount of information into a manuscript anyone can enjoy, understand and act upon. A book that would speak to the full audience it is intended for – everyone.
Energy is an invisible, mysterious and easily taken for granted luxury. That is, until we are cut off from its supply or it is visualized.
Which in most cases is portrayed as a cost on a financial statement or utility bill.
Even if the cost is comparably low to other costs, it is an opportunity to materialize benefits beyond financial gains.
I hope you enjoy the opportunity I’ve illuminated and wish you success and prosperity on your journey navigating the maze.

Navigating the Maze of Energy Efficiency Projects by Jeff Julia is one of the best books I have read on energy efficiency, an area of focus that has attracted a lot of attention, thanks to cutting-edge technologies and the drive to cut costs in business ventures. With the huge number of energy saving products in the market, consumers can get confused when it comes to making choices that adequately respond to their business needs, and this becomes even more challenging for entrepreneurs and business owners who have limited time and resources at their disposal. But this book offers a road map for readers to navigate when considering energy options for their business. The book identifies the common mistakes consumers are likely to make and offers priceless insights and guidance on how to avoid them while proposing six powerful steps to help readers make informed and wise decisions.

With the use of anecdotes and real life examples, and drawing hugely from his experience and expertise, the author offers tools for readers to make the right decisions when it comes to selecting solutions that offer great benefits. I enjoyed the fact that the author immediately lets the reader know his intended audience: “If you are responsible for managing a business or a building, then this book is intended for you. If your responsibilities include generating any of the pay-offs listed above, then this book will be a valuable resource for you as well.” The book is written in an accessible, easy-to-read, popular style that will appeal to a wide audience. Navigating the Maze of Energy Efficiency Projects might have been written for readers who have businesses or huge buildings to manage, but it will help anyone seeking the best energy solutions with the professional guidance they need. Jeff Julia’s expertise and experience come across strongly and the confident writing will leave readers in no doubt that they are in good hands.
