    USGBC Central Plains and KC City Energy Project invite you to Sustainable Solutions for Customers: Building a Winning Value Proposition presented by Kevin Brannan from KCP&L.

    This program will focus on commercial and industrial customers who have taken steps to identify and define sustainable solutions within their organizations. The selected panelist spent six months together in a once a month co-hort learning session about a wide range of topics pertaining to water, CO2 and energy efficiency. Through the course the panelist were able to learn not only about opportunities within their building, but how they could transform the behavior and actions of the employees within their organization around sustainability.

    At the end of this presentation, attendees will have:

    • Gained a better understanding of best practices taken by a cross section of organizations around sustainability that they can both replicate and scale based on each participants unique organizational needs.
    • Learned about utility resources available to leverage when defining and developing an energy road map.

    Fee to attend is $5. Light breakfast will be served.

    • 26 Oct 2016
    • 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
    • TBD

    USGBC Central Plains and KC City Energy Project invite you to Energy-Saving Improvement Opportunities for Commercial Buildings, presented by Tim O'Kane from Energy Solutions Professionals.

    The adoption and implementation of comprehensive energy-saving renovations in commercial buildings has historically lagged behind other market segments for a variety of factors. ROIs and paybacks have often been too long to be attractive, so it made little sense for commercial property owners to make major investments in buildings. However, new sources of funding, financing and rebates have created attractive opportunities for addressing old equipment and systems in need of replacement. In multi-tenant properties specifically, determining how to pay for necessary major infrastructure upgrades such as heating and cooling systems can be a contentious topic.

    This program will feature veterans of the Kansas City commercial property market and provide insight in to how and why they now look to energy efficiency as a way to pay for key facility improvements. They will speak to their recent experience upgrading five properties in Kansas City, including the first Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financed project in Missouri.

    Attendees will learn about the different challenges faced by these companies, and how energy-efficient improvements became the answer they were looking for; including what improvements were ultimately able to be included, and which ones got relegated to the cutting room floor. They’ll also learn why blending low-cost quick payback items with more costly upgrades can be a smart long term strategy. Financing and funding options will also be discussed, along with the factors that make each applicable or more attractive.

    Fee to attend is $5. Light breakfast to be served.
