Existing Building Renewal Initiative
The existing commercial building stock in the Northwest represents a significant energy-savings opportunity to improve bottom lines and asset values for building owners and reduced costs for business tenants. Through the BetterBricks program, the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is developing a regional Existing Building Renewal initiative to help building owners, managers and tenants conduct whole-building deep energy efficiency retrofits of existing assets. The Existing Building Renewal initiative will motivate and guide owners as well as design and construction teams to revamp existing building stock to achieve energy savings of 35% or more, ideally aiming for 2030 Challenge targets of 50% or more. The initial focus is on commercial real estate office buildings greater than 20,000 square feet.
