BUILDING ENERGY - Spring 2018 - 39

Done well, we have seen these pilot projects
model 2-8 year paybacks, and in the case of
those that were closer to eight years, the reasons
became clear as the projects progressed. Properly
designed and managed, this model is very viable
for PACE financing and other options for energy
efficiency retrofits. Additionally, there are
incentives for these levels of energy efficiency.
Heat pumps are commonly eligible for prescriptive
incentives, whereas projects involving heat
recovery ventilation typically fall into custom
programs and require a bit more time and effort
to present and gain approval.
More projects are in the works, with New York,
Maine and British Columbia utilities and efficiency
organizations developing pilots and/or programs
to harness these very significant savings and
benefits for small to medium commercial
buildings. NEEA is compiling case studies with
relevant data on a number of building types in a
full range of climates. As these pilots turn into
programs, there is significant opportunity to meet
aggressive goals of reducing energy in
existing buildings.
