Energy Efficiency and Investment Returns: The Critical Role of Tenants
Filmed October 27 at the 2016 ULI Fall Meeting in Dallas, Texas. ULI is launching a comprehensive new program dedicated to the design and construction of energy-efficient tenant space. Through how-to guides, videos, and case studies, this program shows occupiers of space and their corporate facility managers, mechanical and electrical engineers, architects, and brokers how to integrate energy efficiency into design and construction with investments that pay for themselves and produce monitored and verifiable returns. We introduced our work on this front and shared real-world examples already employed by leaders in this arena like JPMorgan Chase, the Empire State Building, CalPERS, and the city of Austin at the “Energy Efficiency and Investment Returns: The Critical Role of Tenants” session during the 2016 ULI Fall Meeting.

Investing in Energy Efficiency in Buildings: Challenges & Opportunities in the United States
Experts from the GBPN network provide analysis and recommendations on how to improve energy efficiency in U.S. buildings. In the United States, buildings account for 41% of primary energy consumption, more than the transport or industrial sectors. Tackling rising energy consumption in U.S. buildings will require a more coordinated and coherent approach to energy efficiency codes and regulation, one that is more focused on retrofits — where most potential gains lie. It is also crucial to develop new financing mechanisms that help institutional investors assess the risks associated with energy-efficient projects.

Investing in Energy Efficiency in Buildings: Challenges & Opportunities in India
India doubled its floor area of buildings between 2001-2005 and is experiencing the fastest rate of growth in new building in the world. By 2050 India will have added about 35 billion m2 of new building floor area. To date, the efforts of India's policymakers have focused on reducing energy consumption in new commercial buildings, but to achieve a significant scale will depend on efficiency measures becoming standard in the residential building segment which until now has not been a priority for energy efficiency policy yet makes up 75% of India's construction market. The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report "Achieving scale in energy-efficient buildings in India: A view from the construction and real estate sectors" commissioned by the GBPN explains the challenges and opportunities of investing in energy efficiency in buildings in India.
Investing in Energy Efficiency in Buildings: Challenges & Opportunities in Europe
Experts from the GBPN network provide analysis and recommendations on how to improve energy efficiency in Europe's buildings. In the European Union, buildings account for 40% of the total energy use and for 36% of CO2 emissions, representing Europe's largest source of green house gas emissions. Therefore, increasing the energy performance of the building sector is key to secure a transition to a low carbon economy and achieve the EU's climate & energy objectives. European real estate and construction executives support European legislation for energy efficiency and energy performance in buildings. While the financial crisis has set a downward trend to real estate valuations, the renovation of the existing building stock could be a means to reverse the tendency. Regulatory uncertainty seems to be the main barrier to increased energy efficiency investments.

Making energy efficiency investment more attractive
Dan Bentham from EDF Energy talks with Oliver Hurrey of 2 Degrees about the challenges and opportunities that EMR brings. https://www.edfenergy.com/large-business/customers/electricity-market-reform *Transcript* Dan Bentham So, the White Paper explains how these electricity market reforms are trying to balance the grid and avoid the need for emergency measures. What does this mean for businesses and their energy strategies? Oliver Hurrey So, traditionally, businesses have looked at energy in terms of how can they procure a certain volume of energy at the lowest price possible. EMR will mean that they will have to look at it in a very different way. They will have to look at how they procure energy at any point in time, how they can reduce the overall consumption of energy and how they can generate their own energy on site. So, this is a move from thinking just about price to thinking more about volume and demand. Dan Bentham What does that mean? What's the challenge there for Energy Managers? Oliver Hurrey So, the real challenge for Energy Managers there is to move away from the traditional reactive thinking where they've responded to the business needs, go out and buy a certain volume of energy at the lowest price possible. Going forward, they're going to have to turn that argument around and think more strategically. They're going to have to influence how a business uses energy, in terms of time of day, when it uses energy, how much energy it uses overall and whether there are opportunities there for generation on site. Dan Bentham OK. And how should Energy Managers build their response to EMR? Oliver Hurrey So, we see there are three clear strategies for building that response and those are set out within the White Paper. We see those as being optimise, reduce and generate energy. And by that we mean for optimise, it's about reducing demand on demand, how they can respond to external markets. The second one, reduce.It's about how they can reduce their long-term energy consumption,particularly during peak times. And the third one is round how they can generate their own energy on site. Dan Bentham And how can Energy Managers improve their chances of success? How do they get the investment they require? Oliver Hurrey So, that's always been a key challenge for Energy Managers. But we see there are seven clear tips to help them build that business case. The two most important tips are around looking at EMR as an opportunity for revenue generation and not just energy savings and have that conversation with Finance Directors. Excite them about revenue generation and get them to buy into that idea. The second one is around return on investment. In order to make most of EMR, you will have to invest in projects, either in energy-efficiency schemes or on-site generation schemes, and there will be a need to move away from the traditional thinking around return on investment for most businesses. Dan Bentham OK. Dan Bentham So, in summary, there seems to be a real mindset shift and strategic shift required from thinking about just price to volume and demand, from thinking about just ROI to thinking about income generation and fundamentally from thinking just reactively to thinking long-term strategically about your energy. If you go to edfenergy.com/EMR, you can find all the tips and advice you need to help you make that shift and get the investment you need.

Energy Efficiency Investment Opportunities on the Rise
Green has never looked so good! 2017 has been deemed the year of increased investments in energy efficiency and other efforts to save energy. Per the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE)*, there are sign that savings will continue to grow. In recent years, overall spending on energy efficient products and services have grown. The same goes for employment in energy efficient jobs. Estimates by The International Energy Agency show that energy efficiency spending increased about 6% from 2014 to 2015, with 2015 spending totaling about $221 billion in major economies throughout the world (2016 figures were not available at the time of the study). Similarly for the United States, BW Research in a report for the Department of Energy, found that 1.9 million Americans work full- or part-time energy efficiency jobs. And this number is expected to rise! The job growth rate is backed by a growing private sector, whose focus is on implementing strong policies, particularly at the state and local levels for better use of energy. Milton Berle, once said: "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." We're taken this mantra to heart here at Yellowblue. Our innovative energy efficiency investment opportunities provide the tools to not just build a better future for you and your family, but the planet as a whole.

Despite the mounting evidence of the value of investing in energy efficiency, the vast majority of commercial and industrial buildings are still costly to operate. The primary reason is that upfront capital with compelling terms and conditions has not been available to fund these kinds of investments. In this workshop, we will discuss available financing vehicles and how innovative financial products will open up the market to widespread adoption over the next five years. Workshop leader Abigail Johnson, LEED AP O&M, is Founder and President of Abacus Property Solutions. Prior to forming Abacus, Abigail worked for over 12 years in the commercial real estate industry, originating and underwriting the acquisition, re-finance and construction of commercial projects. Her real estate expertise is complemented by her building science background including the provision of energy audits, LEED feasibility studies, and property condition assessments, as well as urban redevelopment projects while working in Rome, Italy. Abby has authored numerous articles on energy efficiency, smart metering and green building topics. She holds a Bachelor of Architectural History from the University of Virginia and a Master in International Economics and Management from L'Universita' SDA Bocconi in Milan, Italy. Abby holds the LEED AP O & M designation that focuses on incorporating green building principles into existing buildings. Abacus Property Solutions works to increase the energy efficiency of existing buildings through innovative financing and engineering solutions. Abacus is a certified woman-owned business with offices in Virginia and California, and believes that one of the most important drivers for successful energy efficient projects is access to capital. Abacus vets and finances projects that typically result in increases in net cash flow of 5%-10+% in the short term, through reduced operating expenses, long term debt, and lower capex reserves. The Abacus value proposition is to identify, implement and finance energy saving measures without the overhead and long term contracts of many companies. In addition, Abacus delivers innovative ideas, exceptional client responsiveness and objectivity - without ties to proprietary products or services. PACE - Property Assessed Clean Energy: Abacus specializes in PACE financing, a new and innovative way to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in existing buildings. PACE is funded in most programs using private capital and repaid through a special assessment on the property tax roll. Typically, there is no upfront capital required to qualify, as 100% of the project costs are covered by the PACE financing. In addition to making buildings more sustainable and energy efficient, PACE is also is a great way to fund deferred capital expenditures. As an innovator in the field, Abacus has deep knowledge of the intricacies of the various PACE programs throughout the US. Services include: arranging financing, evaluating project and borrower eligibility, obtaining consent of first mortgage holders and assisting the PACE investment community in understanding the nuances of the various programs.

Energy saving investments in Gurievsk, Russia -- NEFCO
The town of Gurievsk, close to Kaliningrad in Russia, has recently invested in energy efficiency measures. The town has upgraded the street lighting system by replacing obsolete street lamps with low-energy LED lights. Reducing electricity consumption also generates environmental benefits since the project will reduce sulphur and carbon emissions and remove environmentally hazardous mercury from the old lamps. The project in Gurievsk is financed jointly by the municipality and NEFCO's Facility for Energy Saving Credits. The Facility for Energy Savings has since its inception financed a wide range of municipal projects in Northwest Russia. Under the terms of the facility, NEFCO may finance up to 90 per cent of the investment costs of a municipal energy saving project. In 2009, the Russian parliament passed a new law requiring all Russian municipalities to draw up action plans to improve their energy efficiency. This means new business opportunities for NEFCO in Russia.

Energy Efficiency in South East Asia
"Energy Efficiency in South East Asia: Investment Opportunities" Seminar by British Embassy Bangkok Mr. Alexander McKinnon, Director of M&C Energy Group Ltd., presented the topics of "Energy Savings: Managing Risk" at British Embassy's recent seminar titled "Energy Efficiency in South East Asia: Investment Opportunities". The highlight of this seminar was the launch of the "Energy Efficiency in South East Asia: Investment Opportunities" Report - a study commissioned by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office. The report compared the potential of the 6 major countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines as destinations for investments in Energy Efficiency undertakings, examining key points for those looking to enter this market: size, profitability, regulatory environment and the country rankings. The Seminar was useful to present the potential of energy efficiency improvements in Thailand, its investment attractiveness and prospective financial returns. Mr. Alexander McKinnon, Director of M&C Energy Group, said that volatility in the energy commodity markets had the impact on investment, and subsequently, on the return of investment. This led many companies to review their energy procurement strategies and processes. The historical way of purchaing, "fixed price, fixed term" is now seen as out of date and requiring overhaul. To overcome the problem, he said, M&C Energy incorporated fully flexible managed price strategies. This was to ensure that there was less risk to market position, protection against market volatility and increased budget certainty.

Home Energy Efficiency: Viewing the Home as an Investment
Brian Kaminer, Co-Chair of Sustainable North Castle, remarks on the benefits of a home energy assessment from an investment standpoint. Brian provides valuable insight on why a home energy assessment is worthwhile, the importance of payback analysis in investment decision-making, the cost-reducing benefits of cash financing, and how energy efficiency investments compare to typical stock and bond investments. Why Have A Home Energy Assessment? To understand the importance of home energy improvements, a key step is to learn about the many opportunities available to save money at home. The best way to do this is to have a BPI-certified contractor conduct an energy assessment in your home. This service is free or subsidized for most New York residents. Even if it's not, the information provided through the assessment is valuable enough to justify payment of the upfront cost. Consider it a form of research in your decision-making process. The assessment allows you to evaluate your choices, decide what works, and follow through with your best options. This might involve a financial analysis of the costs and returns expected from energy efficiency upgrades. Payback Analysis and Choosing Your Upgrades A payback analysis illustrates how long it will take you to recoup the initial costs from your upgrades and start saving money. On your report, you will likely receive a range of options to choose from, each with their own payback time. Some upgrades recover their initial costs quickly while others might take 10 years or more. For his own home, Brian decided to pursue a variety of upgrades with an average payback period of 7 years, a return of about 13% a year. With a $10,000 investment creating returns of 10% a year, you would recoup your costs in 10 years, after which any additional money saved would go directly into your pocket. Out-of-Pocket Financing Financing options are available, but because of interest payments on the loans, these options extend the payback period from the improvements. When comparing efficiency to other investment options, this is an important consideration to keep in mind. Home energy efficiency upgrades become an even more viable option should you have the opportunity to pay cash. Using cash eliminates interest payments, ensuring that you realize the returns from your investment as quickly as possible. Viewing your Home as an Investment Banks provide for assured and safe investments, but low interest rates limit yields, and when Brian initially had his assessment several years ago, the stock market was too volatile for reliable investment. Even producing historical returns, investments in the market did not match what he expected to make from an investment in his home. Brian viewed his efficiency investment not only a means for financial benefit but also as in investment in the quality of life for his family. Moreover, the investment also incorporated some of his growing values regarding sustainability and the environment. But for many, including Brian, the financial outcome is the largest incentive for investing in home energy efficiency. Interested in receiving a NYSERDA free or subsidized home energy assessment?
