Save the date for Building Renewal: Making the business case for deep energy retrofits

Thursday, February 18
12 – 1:15 pm
Ecotrust Building
721 NW 9th Avenue, Portland

Since 2010, Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, NEEA, has been developing the concept of building renewal with the goal of accelerating market adoption of deep energy retrofits in the Pacific Northwest. In this presentation, Emily Moore, senior initiative manager, will share NEEA’s key lessons learned from this effort and introduce an innovative Building Renewal business case tool that will be available to the market in 2015. Focusing primarily on the commercial office real estate market, NEEA’s Building Renewal Initiative positions deep energy retrofits as a value creation strategy for investors and incorporates non-energy benefits that impact key real estate economic drivers, such as market competitiveness, rental revenue and tenant retention.

Emily Moore leads NEEA’s Existing Building Renewal Initiative, which supports commercial real estate owners with integrated building renovations that achieve deep energy savings. She has more than 10 years of energy efficiency industry experience designing and managing pilot projects and large-scale energy-efficiency programs. Before joining NEEA, Emily was an associate director at Portland Energy Conservation, Inc., and oversaw a portfolio of large commercial efficiency programs, including programs for commercial new construction, major renovation and existing building commissioning. She has a Master of Urban and Regional Planning from Portland State University and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and Sociology from the University of Oregon.
