Earth Day 2017 – Energy Efficiency Enabled by Technology

April 17, 2017 , Industry
This year, more than a billion people from over 193 countries are expected to participate in Earth Day activities. Marking its 47th anniversary on Saturday, April 22, 2017, Earth Day is an annual event that promotes education and support for a healthy and sustainable environment.
