German Most Energy Efficient Country; U.S. Ranks 13th

The Guardian reports that "Germany is the world's most energy efficient country with strong codes on buildings while China is quickly stepping up its own efforts..."  

"The study of 16 major economies by the Washington-based American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy ranked Mexico last and voiced concern about the pace of efforts by the United States and Australia."  

"The council gave Germany the top score as it credited Europe's largest economy for its mandatory codes on residential and commercial buildings as it works to meet a goal of reducing energy consumption by 20% by 2020 from 2008 levels."
