Energy Efficiency Training Opportunity for Portfolio Managers
Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) is partnering with building owners and managers to deliver a customized energy efficiency training program to housing portfolios in order to support increasing demands on property managers. Targeted outcomes from this training program include:
- Reduced utility expenses
- Enhanced mechanical equipment operations
- Improved organization of building information to better identify rebates and opportunities for specific building upgrades
The training program utilizes a NYC focused software platform that pulls from public benchmarking data. This will help to:
- Deliver “just-in-time” training on energy efficiency practices to building operators in the form of short training videos, available on their mobile devices.
- Support managers in the development of due diligence plans to address carbon fines and energy letter grades, while also taking advantage of increasingly lucrative utility and NYS rebate opportunities.
While funding is available, 70+% of the cost of this two-year energy management program may be provided by NYSERDA. This initial offering is being developed for portfolios of buildings that have 100+ units, and comprised of individual buildings with greater than 25 units per building.
