How Commercial Real Estate Owners Can Optimize Their Energy Spend

read | Share:

Energy costs make up about one-third of operating costs in U.S. buildings and are typically the single greatest expense for large building owners. 

According to the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT), the building sector consumes more energy than the manufacturing or transportation sectors, using about 40 percent of the total energy consumed in the United States and at a whopping $400 billion each year

Given this significant expense, how can commercial real estate owners get the most out of their energy spend?

Fortunately, in today’s competitive energy markets, there are many opportunities for building owners and energy managers to improve how they purchase energy. To help building owners reduce their operating expenses, we've published a new, in-depth eGuide. The guide — "Energy Solutions for Commercial Real Estate" — shares a comprehensive approach to energy management that can improve building value, comfort and return on investment (ROI). Additionally, the guide covers why:

  • Commercial real estate renters in LEED-certified buildings gladly pay higher lease premiums

  • Green office buildings have higher occupancy rates than conventional buildings

  • Our energy strategies and government incentives can lead to greater profit
