The value of energy-efficiency retrofits

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

Rocky Mountain Institute’s Deep Retrofit Value Guide demonstrates how deep energy-efficiency retrofits create value and provides foundational methodology to calculate and represent value to customers and retrofit decision makers.
