Energy efficiency’s big secret: a major retrofit of performance can be surprisingly affordable

ENERGY | Sponsored: Existing buildings typically have the ability to radically improve their energy performance. That means there’s often a mountain of untapped potential that could slash emissions and running costs, according to Craig Roussac of Buildings Alive.

It might sound too good to be true but there’s a way to save as much as 25 per cent on energy bills without spending an extra cent on capital upgrades.

The trick? People.

Human empowerment is the secret weapon in building performance, according to Roussac.

Roussac and his team of engineers and scientists at Buildings Alive have spent over 10 years developing a technology and service that arms building managers with the tools to iteratively drive down energy usage.

The program has delivered energy savings for hundreds of large office buildings, shopping centres, academic buildings, laboratories and other complex buildings around the world at a fraction of the cost of an onsite solar array or other major capital project.
