The use of property valuation is an essential aspect of the property lifecycle and directly influences financial decision making that is why encouraging the consideration of energy efficiency and renewable energy needs to start here. Being able to demonstrate the business case to prospective buyers, sellers, lenders and investors is prerequisite to accelerating the market transition towards Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs).
Yet the ability to demonstrate this business case for sustainable buildings is exactly what is missing at present: many valuation professionals lack both the skills and the knowledge to consistently take energy efficiency and renewable energy issues into account when advising their clients. This course aims to fill this knowledge and skills gap by developing training material for practising valuation professionals on how to factor energy efficiency and renewable energy issues into valuation practices and how to advise their clients accordingly
This development is part of our commitment package we made at COP21 in Paris where we promised to develop RenoValue, our sustainability valuation training programme, for a worldwide audience.
