Energy Efficiency in Real Estate

What is Energy Efficiency in Real Estate?

The most effective way to minimise energy expenses and reduce carbon emissions is to improve the energy efficiency of existing and new buildings and equipment. Savings of 20–50 percent can be reached with commercially appealing paybacks, if conducted correctly.

Why aim for energy efficiency?

Energy optimization means maximizing the way you use energy in the buildings. This goes beyond simply conserving energy and involve involves improving energy efficiency (and savings) in the spaces occupied. This can optimise your system by preventing it from becoming overworked.

How could energy efficiency benefit your business?

There are numerous reasons why property managers or asset managers should consider optimising their energy use, ranging from the obvious environmental and financial benefits to potential physical health benefits.
