Whether you are a closely-held small commercial property owner or a large, publicly-traded real estate company, it is important that you conduct a full energy performance assessment on all of your properties.
Understanding existing and emerging technologies and energy disclosure policies can help you operate your buildings more efficiently, avoid legal risk and improve the valuations of your real estate.
Maximizing the value of potential improvements requires solid benchmark information on how your buildings use energy today. It also requires creativity and collaboration with your tenants to achieve mutual energy efficiency goals.
Customers and potential investors are making decisions based on whether building owners and commercial tenants are exhibiting corporate social responsibility. Both landlords and tenants can benefit most if they can put aside the underlying adversarial relationship to cooperate on energy efficiency.
Taking steps toward making your buildings perform better is about more than just establishing a "green" reputation.
Commercial properties are your investment. To get the proper return on that investment, you need to effectively manage the energy performance of your buildings.
