Energy Efficiency and the Green Deal

In the current economic climate, managing your property portfolio to maximise energy efficiency is an important commercial and financial consideration. For those in the public and third sectors there are additional social drivers including combating fuel poverty and promoting opportunities for the local work force. Drawing on our unprecedented market experience in the energy and renewables sector and our work at the forefront of the public and private sector real estate and facility management sectors, Walker Morris advises on a range of energy efficiency projects including asset rationalisation, retrofit, renewables installations, energy performance contracting and the Green Deal.
