Commercial Real Estate: Unlocking the energy efficiency retrofit investment opportunity

Commercial Real Estate: Unlocking the energy efficiency retrofit investment opportunity

Energy efficiency retrofits have shown attractive returns on investment, even for short term investors. This is because such measures do not only generate direct cost savings, and they also are showing positive impacts on the overall value of buildings. However, despite evidence of the cost-effectiveness and robustness of the business case for such investments the vast majority of profitable retrofit opportunities remain untapped. This report outlines why and how asset owners and managers can generate profitable energy efficiency investment opportunities and proactively manage them even in cases where payback is uncertain. It provides a synthesis of essential information and practices from real estate leaders in the form of a seven step approach and includes examples of how investors can increase the value of their real estate assets through energy efficiency retrofits.
