The State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Technical Assistance Program invite you to join us on, February 26th, from 2:00-4:00 PM EST for a webinar on High-Performance Leasing Strategies for State and Local Governments.
High-Performance Leasing addresses barriers that inhibit owners and tenants from moving forward with energy efficiency in existing commercial buildings. One of the key barriers to energy efficiency in leased spaces occurs when owners’ and tenants’ feel that the improvements to energy efficiency would benefit someone else (the split incentives problem). Unfortunately, traditional lease structures can discourage both parties from reducing operating costs by undertaking capital improvements, changing occupant behavior, or revising operational policies. High-performance leasing bridges this barrier by aligning incentives and incorporating benefit- and cost-sharing practices into lease terms.
In this webcast, you will learn how to use model high-performance leasing strategies in publicly leased buildings and promote their use in the private sector. Guest speakers Elizabeth Vasatka from the City of Boulder, Colorado, Christopher Gizzi from the State of Washington and Brad Molotsky from Brandywine Realty Trust will discuss their experiences with implementing these strategies and take questions from participants. Adam Sledd from the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT), which manages the Green Lease Library, will moderate.
State and local officials responsible for energy, sustainability leasing, general services and facility management as well as leasing agents, building owners and other professionals involved in government and private sector leasing.
