  9. 9. Why Energy Efficiency? <ul><li>Promote energy efficiency as available now – no need to wait for promising new technology. </li></ul><ul><li>No matter how you measure financial merit, energy efficiency probably has the highest return on investment of anything you can do in your business. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Other Reasons Beyond Payback A warehouse operation in Seattle improved their selection accuracy from 99.4% to 99.9% after the lighting retrofit. A recent survey of 538 senior business executives and 18 in-depth interviews that “almost three-quarters (73%) of firms polled will make energy efficiency a high or moderate priority over the next two years in a bid to cut costs.” An office tower will be using their new lighting fixtures to reduce glare and avoid worker complaints – and the new fixtures will be paid for out of energy savings. A food products factory in Chicago installed the new lights when their primary customer asked them what they are doing to help the environment.
  11. 11. Energy Efficiency Today <ul><li>Building energy costs run $1.50 to $3.50 per square foot. </li></ul><ul><li>What is your energy cost per square foot? </li></ul><ul><li>Find out and track it. </li></ul><ul><li>Create a team to investigate options. </li></ul><ul><li>Act on projects that have a good return on investment </li></ul>Your energy cost today does not have to be as high as it is. Make an objective Manage as if you want to reach that objective
  12. 12. Your Energy Costs Your energy cost today does not have to be as high as it is. Make an objective Manage as if you want to reach that objective
  13. 13. Seven Reasons for Energy Efficiency <ul><li>Reason number 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t throw your cash in the trash </li></ul>
  14. 14. Seven Reasons for Energy Efficiency <ul><li>Reason number 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Your employees will be happier </li></ul><ul><li>Orcon quote and picture </li></ul>
  15. 15. Seven Reasons for Energy Efficiency <ul><li>Reason number 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Tax deduction </li></ul>
  16. 16. Seven Reasons for Energy Efficiency <ul><li>Reason number 4 </li></ul><ul><li>You get new stuff </li></ul><ul><li>Pictures of new equipment </li></ul>
  17. 17. Seven Reasons for Energy Efficiency <ul><li>Reason number 5 </li></ul><ul><li>Your facility is more valuable </li></ul><ul><li>“ If you look at the impact, you are getting higher rent, lower energy costs and lower vacancy costs,” says [CoStar CEO Andy] Florence. “You have three things working on the income statement to the positive. You are going to have a much higher valuation of the building.” </li></ul><ul><li>Higher Building Valuations </li></ul><ul><li>How much higher valuation? The report found that an ENERGY STAR building sold for an average of $351.60 per square foot in 2006, 30 percent higher than a non-ENERGY STAR building, which sold for an average of $270.15 per square foot. Since 2003, ENERGY STAR buildings also have been appreciating in value faster than non-ENERGY STAR buildings. </li></ul>Source: CoStar report on Energy Star performed for the US DOE
