Editor's Note Energy efficiency, roofing and windows Businesses and property owners looking for ways to better manage their buildings' energy efficiency and to install energy-efficient equipment have options. Our experts discuss the importance of benchmarking and the potential value of a flexible Energy Savings Agreement. The ESA allows for the installation of high-tech equipment with no upfront expenses, with the energy savings used to pay for the cost of the new machinery. And benchmarking helps evaluate a building's energy use and discover opportunities for improvement. Choosing the right air conditioning system is crucial. And in Hawaii, many buildings are getting older and looking to upgrade their chiller plants. Read our reports on how to make the best decisions on which systems are the right fit for your building. " In our Windows & Doors section, we take a look at what you need to do to make your property safe during a hurricane as well as ways you cut the glare from the sun while keeping the indoors cooler. In this issue we also feature a local business that can re-polish scratched glass, and we take a look at what roofing materials are well-suited to Hawaii's climate.
