1 Geoexchange in Commercial Buildings – An Owners Perspective Phillip Saieg, LEED AP O+M Director of Sustainable Building

2 Agenda: Top reasons owner’s choose Geoexchange systems The Market Trends for Green Buildings Why Energy Efficiency and Green Matters to an Owner Who makes what decisions in commercial buildings

3 Top Reasons owners choose Geoexchange 1. Low maintenance (total cost of ownership) 2. Long system life 3. Hedge against rising and volatile energy prices. 4. Geo is the best / lowest impact system for building owners wishing to be sustainable 5. Depending on the application Geoexchange is interesting to building owners because it can balance both heating and cooling loads. However… Bottom line if an owner is just fixated on lowest first cost it is unlikely they will choose Geoexchange

4 “As green buildings become more common, conventional buildings will rapidly lose value and become obsolete - Charles Lockwood, Harvard Business Journal (2006) “Green will be measured by the business community, regulators, savvy consumers…stay on top of green or eat everyone’s dust. There will be differentiation over the long run, adapt or get crushed.” - Urban Land Institute, Emerging Trends (2008)
