The Maximizing Commercial Real Estate Value with Renewable Energy Panel discussion & networking breakfast will take place Wednesday, October 6, 2010, 7:30 am – 9:30 am, Olin Hall, Needham/Wellesley Room.

MYTH: Renewable energy technologies are a thing of the future, unproven, and cost prohibitive.

FACT: Right now, commercial property owners and developers are taking advantage of the technical and financial viability of renewable energy sources to improve the value of their real estate assets.

Join our panel discussion to learn how renewable energy projects involving solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and waste-to-energy technologies can increase the viability of real estate development projects and enhance the value of commercial properties. An ever-increasing number of companies are investing in renewable energy technologies. In many cases, this investment has resulted in the following:

  • Increases in overall market valuation,
  • Availability of new, lower cost energy sources to support company growth,
  • Hedging of risks against rising utility rates, and
  • Achievement of corporate sustainability goals.
