The value of deep energy retrofits

Deep energy-efficiency retrofits can do more than help building owners reduce maintenance costs. They can also provide value through reducing tenant turnover and insurance premiums, and increasing rent, property and sales values.

Rocky Mountain Institute’s Deep Retrofit Value Guide explains the value of deep energy-efficiency retrofits and provides a foundational methodology to calculate and represent that value to customers.

Incorporating additional value into decision-making beyond the energy cost savings is a critical step leading to a better assessment of the value proposition, helping customers make a smart investment in deep retrofit projects. Energy Trust provides guidance to building owners during their decision-making process to ensure that the full value of the retrofit is considered and to capture higher returns from these investment opportunities.
