Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and sponsors will host a breakfast summit, highlighting new funding and technical opportunities for building owners and managers. The event will be moderated by Maud Daudon from the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. Building owners, elected officials, and potential program participants will all be present to discuss energy efficiency programs and funding for building owners and managers in Seattle.
Commercial and residential buildings are the largest consumers of energy, accounting for approximately $400 billion annually in energy costs in the United States. In most cases, energy consumption is the determining factor for the financial performance of a building. Energy-efficient buildings create greater net income for owners, are more cost efficient for tenants and have a greater marketing advantage. As an example, representatives from Washington Athletic Club will discuss how the $1 million dollar renovation of the facility is saving the club approximately $200,000 annually.
The event is sponsored by Emerald Cities Seattle, Seattle 2030 District, Community Power Works (City of Seattle), MacDonald Miller Facility Solutions, Seattle Steam and the Energy Efficiency Finance Corporation.
