Energy usage in commercial buildings, as well as the push toward decarbonization and away from reliance on fossil fuels and natural gas, will be a major focus in 2022 and the years ahead in commercial real estate. Local municipalities and State agencies are now enacting legislation in this area that will significantly impact the operation of commercial buildings. Owners and property managers need to be actively involved in how to implement new regulations and how the costs associated therewith can be addressed in leases ad capital plan budgets.
Join our host Manuel Fishman, along with Tom Arnold, Co-Founder and CEO of Gridium, and Buchalter’s energy expert Jonathan Kendrick, as they discuss the significant challenges and risks that owners, developers, and property managers of large commercial buildings face, and what steps they should be taking now to de-emphasize reliance on fossil fuels and natural gas in existing buildings.
