Searching For Common Metrics
Thursday, Feb 23, 2012
The 2nd Annual Conference on Sustainable Real Estate for the Sustainable Built Environment will explore the growing significance of energy performance and carbon emissions in real estate investment decisions. The lack of data and common performance metrics has hindered the expansion of commercial building retrofit markets in the face of uncertainty around energy savings and investment returns. A number of cities now require the disclosure and benchmarking of building energy consumption, together with a number of voluntary, industry-led initiatives. These efforts will dramatically expand the availability of data and the potential for performance indicators to inform investment and risk analysis. The Conference brings together leaders from the private, public, and academic sectors to discuss the emerging debt and equity markets for commercial building energy efficiency, the role of data and information technology in decision making, and the need for common performance metrics that cross disciplinary and professional boundaries.
