Past vs. Present: Uncovering the Evolution of Energy Efficiency in Real Estate Management
In the past, Asset Managers in the Real Estate industry faced significant challenges when it came to inefficient energy use in their portfolios. They struggled with high operating costs, limited visibility into building performance, and a lack of effective strategies to reduce energy waste. However, with the advent of data-driven solutions, Asset Managers now have the opportunity to transform their approach and achieve substantial cost savings.
Past: The Challenges of Inefficient Energy Use
Asset Managers used to rely on outdated methods to address inefficient energy use in their buildings. These methods included capital projects that required significant upfront investment and had long payback periods. Asset Managers often struggled to verify the effectiveness of these projects and faced challenges in meeting their sustainability goals. Additionally, the lack of real-time visibility into building operations made it difficult to identify specific energy-saving opportunities and measure the impact of energy-saving initiatives.
