Leveraging Energy Transparency

Data transparency and disclosure is growing in both public and private sectors, and the building industry is not immune. An increasing number of cities are moving beyond energy transparency, mandating that highly inefficient existing buildings undergo detailed audits and upgrades to reduce their energy use.

This transparency movement can compel forward-thinking architects to consider their contributions to existing building performance and the new business opportunities that might emerge – including your firm?

In the Leveraging Energy Transparency brief, we give a succinct but thorough look at the transparency in the building sector by reviewing:

  • the movement toward energy transparency in cities across the country,
  • the business opportunity energy transparency presents for architects and
  • how architects can improve building performance while improving client relationships.
