It’s no secret a good energy management strategy will reduce operating expenses and add value to commercial real estate assets. However, the specifics of energy efficiency measures often are misconstrued, due to three core misconceptions:

  • Owners pay, tenants reap benefits
  • Asset managers are seeking quick ROI, and energy management has a slow ROI
  • The older the building, the less the return


Increasing Asset Value Through Energy Management Systems


If the right solutions are utilized, a few simple, no and low cost adjustments to building operations can make energy use significantly more efficient.


From solutions such as optimizing building schedules and avoiding coincident runs to lowering your baseload, there is a multitude of ways to reduce energy consumption with zero capital investment.

No matter the type of adjustments asset managers make to their buildings, it is a proven fact that eco-friendly buildings are proven to help your bottom line.

Commercial Real Estate Energy Use: The Stats are Staggering!


   A whopping 35% of all electricity use comes from commercial real estate, and more often than not, energy is the single largest operating expense for property owners. Even more outrageous is the fact that, on average, 30% of this energy is wasted.


   At PSF Energy, our mission is to significantly decrease the energy consumption and increase your bottom line.


   One of the most important reasons commercial real estate companies should be concerned with energy is that it is a key cost driver for operations. Reducing energy use, whether it’s through investments in more efficient equipment, or simple scheduling adjustments, directly impacts your building’s NOI.

Reducing Commercial Energy Use


   A great deal of energy is wasted solely on energy being used after business hours. For example, if everyone leaves the office at 6pm, there’s no reason to leave lights on and air conditioning running until 9pm.


   By analyzing real-time data, commercial building owners can easily identify when energy is being used outside of operating hours, how much it can be reduced, and what the savings will be.

Energy Efficiency Has Compelling Value Proposition for All

For VPs of Asset Management: Increased NOI Through Visibility and Engagement


Improving energy efficiency is one proven strategy to increase asset value, but without a firm grip on costs across your portfolio and buy-in from your director of engineering, it becomes more burden than profit-booster. You need the tools to understand how energy costs are impacting NOI at each building, and which enable your engineers to quickly implement cost-saving measures.

For Directors of Engineering: Reduced Operating Expenses



Better energy management has huge potential to reduce operating costs, but how do you choose from the many tools available to you? Which one will your chief engineers actually use? You need to enable your engineering staff to find big value inefficiencies amidst the noise of building automation system alerts and faults and provide the tools to resolve those inefficiencies quickly.

For Property Managers: Tools to Improve Property Marketability



Nothing matters more than the marketability of your property, and tenants are increasingly demanding more energy-efficient spaces. You need tools that help you prioritize energy initiatives, and showcase the efficiency successes to (prospective and existing) tenants.
