EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report helps energy services firms and real estate retrofit specialists understand the Better Building Challenge, a green building policy initiative announced by the White House on December 2, 2011. The Better Buildings Challenge aims to bring together Federal Government’s procurement powers and commitments from 60 private sector property owners to commission $4 billion of energy efficiency projects. These ambitious commitments face considerable headwinds as they were made during a period of great uncertainty in the US commercial real estate market. In addition, as 2012 is an election year, political jockeying on Capitol Hill threatens the success of the energy efficiency mandate in the case of Federal agencies.
