Energy efficiency articles & insights

Read our latest articles and insights from ProptechOS about energy efficiency. Energy-efficient buildings consume less power, leading to lower utility bills. This is particularly significant in commercial real estate where energy costs can be a substantial portion of operating expenses. Properties with better energy efficiency often have higher market values. They are more attractive to buyers and renters who are increasingly aware of energy costs and environmental impact. Energy efficiency in real estate is crucial for several compelling reasons from economic benefits to environmental impacts and societal considerations.
