Costs of Advanced Efficiency Measures in Commercial Buildings
Code & Policy / New Construction
NBI has identified the following four studies as a general survey of the cost impact of increasing the level of energy efficiency in commercial new construction and major retrofits. This is not an exhaustive survey of cost material available, but an indication of general experience with costs in the markets when higher levels of energy efficiency are specified.
- Cost of Green Revisited; Reexamining the Feasibility and Cost Impact of Sustainable Design in the Light of Increased Market Adoption; Peter Morris and Lisa Fay Matthiessen; Davis Landon (2007)
- What Does Green Really Cost?; Peter Morris; PREA Quarterly, Summer 2007
- The Business Case for Green Building; A Review of the Costs and Benefits for Developers, Investors and Occupants; World Green Building Council (2013)
- PG&E Zero Net Energy Program; California Zero Net Energy Buildings Cost Study; Davis Energy Group (2012)
