Webinar to Look at Financing Small Commercial Building Energy Performance Upgrades

Feb 20, 2015 -- The National Institute of Building Sciences Council on Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (CFIRE) will host a webinar March 10, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST, to look at the financing of energy performance upgrades in small commercial buildings.

Small commercial buildings (generally defined as less than 50,000 square feet) represent the preponderance of the U.S. commercial building stock, yet they are a largely untapped source for significant energy savings. CFIRE recently issued a report that examined why there is such a limited investment in retrofitting this sector. Entitled Financing Small Commercial Building Energy Performance Upgrades: Challenges and Opportunities, the report offers findings and recommendations to help unlock the potential energy savings in the largest segment of the nation’s building stock.

The webinar will highlight existing programs that are successfully supporting retrofits for small commercial buildings; identify the significant opportunities presented by this segment of the industry; and cover the report’s findings and recommendations, which are aimed at government, retrofit providers and building owners.

Presenters include Leanne Tobias, CFIRE chair and principal of Malachite LLC, who led development of the report; James Finlay, principal at Finlay Consulting Group, a main contributor to the report; Rois Langner, an engineer in the Commercial Buildings Research Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, where she focuses on barriers to energy efficiency; and Ryan M. Colker, program director for CFIRE at the National Institute of Building Sciences.
