Commercial Real Estate
Attract tenants through affordable energy strategies that yield savings, carbon reductions and efficiencies.
Commercial real estate is a competitive market where landlords must compete for tenants among a host of alternative options, especially in major metropolitan cities across the U.S. where real estate values are high and competition is fierce. Appealing to tenants entails a variety of techniques, and energy is a big driver. A building’s heating and cooling solution can influence tenant lease decisions, since energy has a drastic impact on cost, space availability and sustainability. Through district energy, building owners have the ability to free up additional amenity space, reduce their energy expenses and demonstrate sustainability benefits to potential tenants.
