Catalysing Efficiency: Unlocking Energy Information and Value in Apartment Buildings

Share this Post:

This report, released by the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT), examines why the US market underuses performance data and provides recommendations on how governments and efficiency programme implementers can turn this information into action and help apartment building owners, residents, lenders and investors better use data to achieve economic and environmental benefits.

 

According to the report, energy and water efficiency opportunities will remain unrealised, until multifamily stakeholders work together to use and value building performance data effectively in consistent, transparent formats. Challenges addressed include: data access issues that prevent multifamily owners and managers from gathering adequate data; market confusion over how benchmarking data can be deployed to spur and track efficiency investments; barriers preventing residents from factoring performance into their apartment decision-making process; and the fact that most lenders and investors do not yet factor building performance data into their standard business practices.
