As COVID-19 cases rose and lockdown measures came into effect around the world, commercial building occupancy dropped dramatically, from 100% to almost zero in the space of a week in many places. Many might expect near-zero occupancy to mean near-zero energy consumption, but new data reveals that this is not the case. In fact, many offices, shopping malls, and entertainment complexes are consuming 80% or more of their usual full-occupancy energy levels, highlighting huge cost implications for businesses, building owners, and the environment.

Energy efficiency is now a fundamental part of doing business in real estate and property management. If companies miss out, they risk falling behind in terms of market competitiveness. This City Energy Project resource provides a multidimensional, in-depth look at the business case for energy efficiency in buildings. It provides an overview of the basic financial arithmetic of energy savings, avoided operating costs, net income, and value, as well as a summary of case study data on what this arithmetic has meant to real projects and companies.

The commercial (i.e. non-residential) buildings, public buildings and urban areas are the fastest growing energy consuming sectors and a key area where the CO2 reduction could be achieved in a cost-effective manner. This is mainly due to the growth of the service sector and urbanisation and their associated demand for heating, cooling ventilation (HVAC), ICT services, lighting, mobility, etc..

This report is part of Task 5 within the California Energy Commission (CEC) EPIC project (EPIC-14- 009) Optimizing Radiant Systems for Energy Efficiency and Comfort
managed through the Centre for the Built Environment at UC Berkeley. The main goal of this research was to determine the building characteristics of projects with radiant heating and cooling and assess their real world energy use compared to standard benchmarks for building energy performance.

The “how-to” guide on renovating shopping centres launched by CommONEnergy during a high-level event in Brussels
project, funded by the FP7 programme, developed new strategies and solutions to retrofit existing shopping centres to reduce consumption, increase energy efficiency and comfort. The project, coming to an end soon, presented its landmark publication, Guidelines on how to approach the energy-efficient renovation of shopping centres
and awarded innovative shopping centres during a full day event in Brussels.
