Deep energy retrofits serve a dual purpose: not only do they achieve energy and cost savings, but they also have the potential to become a new and robust business model for architects.

Making energy efficiency improvements in existing buildings most often involves replacing outdated engineering systems, such as lighting and HVAC systems, with better-performing technologies.

This standard approach saves energy and addresses some of the large inefficiencies in existing buildings. But building owners could realize substantially greater savings with a design-centered retrofit strategy that considers all the interactions within the building's systems. Retrofits of this type—called deep energy retrofits—aim for energy savings upwards of 50 percent.

During this live video webinar, we will present:

  • The what and why of deep energy retrofits
  • The state of the market (current and future)
  • A discussion of case studies, tools and financing

Who should attend?
Architects, building designers, building owners, and energy professionals.
