One of the key components to a low-carbon economy resides in improving the energy performance of our existing building stock. Even in the face of an appealing payback, a mixture of financial, legal, and cultural hurdles often prevents energy retrofit projects from being undertaken.
A range of studies cites the split incentive and insufficient credit (due to the prevailing commercial real estate business models) as significant financing obstacles. Recognizing the economic potential of such retrofits, numerous entities from across the fields of design, construction, environment, and finance are actively working on overcoming these institutionalized roadblocks.
