Financing Energy Efficiency-Part 2

Wednesday, Nov 9, 2011

The greatest barrier architects face when trying to design for energy efficiency is the client who says, “We can’t afford to pay for energy efficiency. We can’t spend our up- front dollars for this, when there are so many other compelling needs.” Too often, especially in retrofits, energy efficiency gets “value engineered” out. Even short paybacks cannot convince many. Capital expenditures trump operating dollars every time.

In the second of two sessions on this topic, architects will learn about energy efficiency incentive programs from utilities, NYSERDA and the federal government. If architects are able to inform our clients of these incentives, it is possible that we would be able to deploy energy efficiency more widely. Simple paybacks can be significantly reduced, in many cases, by using the incentive programs covered in this session. Incentives exist for both retrofit and new construction. In addition, in the case of the Federal Tax Credit program, if the client is a federal agency or a not for profit, the tax credit can accrue to the architect. It is important for all architects to have the information necessary to utilize these programs.
