This Energy Efficiency Day, we celebrated our love for energy efficiency at Waypoint by featuring a spotlight Q&A session with our Vice President of Utility Solutions, Emily Pearce. She expressed the history of her passion for energy efficiency, how it’s incorporated in her daily and professional lives, and how she sees it shaping the future. But wait, there’s more! To top off Waypoint nerd-ing out about energy efficiency, Waypoint Energy Manager, Marta Schantz won the Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP) #EEDay17 social media campaign!
Marta’s wish for Energy Efficiency Day 2017 represented Waypoint Energy'’s goals in embedding energy efficiency in the commercial real estate industry and won over the campaign judges. We’re overjoyed that others agreed with Marta’s tweet and were humbled by the other submissions as well. Way to go Marta and all the other energy efficiency community submitters!
If you’re interested in learning more about how energy efficiency improvements impact asset value, talk to us at Waypoint Energy! We make the business case for energy efficiency measures with financial metrics that decision-makers want to see: return on investment, net present value, simple payback period, as well as increase in asset value. You can also check out a report we supported that aggregates market research studies on green labels (ENERGY STAR, LEED) and financial performance of the properties and occupants.
