“RMI: Deep Energy Retrofits Get Less Attention Than They Deserve”

  • Typically focused on energy cost savings alone
  • Inability to quantify and communicate additional “value streams as part of a retrofit capital request”

RMI has created a report detailing “structured and evidence-based methodology for determining the costs and savings of many other value streams, from additional operating cost savings categories to revenue drivers like employee comfort, health and productivity, and even market and reputation risk mitigation.”
