    Show Me The Money: Boosting Investor Confidence Through Better Building Energy Efficiency Modeling

    Ellen Franconi from Rocky Mountain Institute will talk about topics touched on in her recent blog post, which was picked up by the Environmental Defense Fund Investor Confidence Project:


    Today’s interest in energy efficiency is perhaps the strongest it has ever been. To capitalize on the investment potential, the risk associated with retrofit energy savings estimates need to be identified. Project savings risk can be partially addressed through uncertainty analysis, modeler credentialing, and establishing modeling process requirements. Continued progress in these areas will help energy projects be considered alongside traditional investments. Coupling these advancements with new financing mechanisms that target outcome-based performance provides the levers needed to realize retrofit building investment opportunities. The approach offers a winning triple play that will provide business profit, new U.S. jobs, and environmental benefits. To realize its benefits will required energy modelers to expand their role and rethink the way their work is presented. Specifically, energy modelers will need to account for direct and indirect benefits and risks associated with energy project performance improvements.
