Green Building Retrofits
Jul 12, 2023 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
Building Owners are actively using green building retrofits as the key to attracting more tenants, competitive positioning in the marketplace, easier and cost-effective operations & maintenance, reduced energy bills and consumption, and carbon benchmarking. Investment in bundles of technology and sustainable practices that interoperate deliver deeper efficiencies and a more comprehensive approach.
According to The Rockefeller Foundation, upgrading and replacing energy-consuming equipment in buildings offers an important capital investment opportunity, with the potential for significant economic, climate, and employment impacts. In the United States alone, more than $279 billion could be invested across the residential, commercial, and institutional market segments. This investment could yield more than $1 trillion in energy savings over 10 years. There are many factors that are part of green retrofitting, from real-time visibility of energy consumption to operations & maintenance optimization; various sectors of the built environment are involved.
