The EEB Hub Enables Demonstration Projects for the Retrofit Market


Publication Date: January 24, 2013

“Securing the funds to finance building energy retrofits remains a challenge to building owners and property managers, in part because of the lack of successful case studies in the greater Philadelphia region. To overcome this, the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB Hub) announced the Advanced Energy Retrofit Opportunity (AERO) demonstration program, aimed at demonstrating Advanced Energy Retrofits (AERs) in average-size commercial buildings in the Philadelphia region. The AERO program will develop and document examples of AERs in buildings typical of the region, helping to ease this barrier to entry for building owners and financiers.”
