Creating Confidence in Energy Efficiency Investment

There’s no better return on investment than energy efficiency. But facility managers often say they have a hard time finding funds for energy efficiency projects. One initiative trying to change that is the Investor Confidence Project.

Through the program, proposed projects would earn an “Investor Ready Energy Efficiency” label. By standardizing the process for performing energy efficiency upgrades, the project hopes to boost investor confidence in a project and make it easier to fund. According to this Building Operating Management article, “In the future, instead of looking for rebates or applying for individual loans, facility managers may be able to document that they meet the ICP standards and then have access to a large pool of investment funds.”
