FINANCE & REAL ESTATE

High-performance buildings provide significant advantages for building owners and users. Commercial buildings enjoy higher occupancy levels, rental rates, and sale prices; in the residential sector, consumer demand for green homes (and the lower utility bills they bring) is at an all-time high.

IMT’s finance policy program develops solutions that encourage homeowners, building owners, tenants, and financial institutions to consider building energy performance when making investment decisions.  We focus on changing business as usual, integrating efficiency considerations into tried-and-true business processes in order to achieve broad market transformation.

Our staff offers guidance to the real estate and financial sectors, educating brokers, appraisers, and other stakeholders. We engage with cities and commercial stakeholders on energy efficiency financing models and program implementation. Our commercial real estate engagement team also promotes green leasing, a model that aligns incentives so both owners and tenants win when they save energy.
