One of the key market barriers to energy efficiency investments in homes and business is a widespread lack of knowledge about how inefficient buildings currently are and what could be done to improve their efficiency. Such information could be particularly valuable at the time buildings are being sold or rented. If the buyer or renter does not know how efficient the building is, inefficiency – and related high energy and other costs – cannot be adequately factored into the buying or renting decision. To address this barrier, a number of jurisdictions in Europe, Australia and – more recently – the United States have adopted policies requiring that building owners hire independent efficiency experts to assess and label the efficiency of their buildings and disclose such information to prospective buyers and/or renters. This webinar was designed to inform regulators, advocates and others on the role such policies could play in advancing efficiency investments.
