Factoring energy into the equation

Maarten Vermeulen FRICS

Managing Director for Europe, Russia & CIS (RICS)

There is emerging evidence that high performing buildings not only perform better in terms of energy efficiency but also financially, commanding higher rents or resale prices.

We’ve also seen that consumers and investors will respond favourably to energy efficiency and renewable energy sources if presented to them in a way that offers value.

RICS has taken a leading role in the development of the RenoValue project, which had one goal: to provide practising valuation professionals with the necessary knowledge and skills to appropriately factor sustainability into their work and advise their clients accordingly.

RICS will promote the use of the training material among practising valuation professionals and is proud to be able to host the eLearning course.

As such, we welcome the introduction of RenoValue to fill this professional knowledge and skills gap amongst valuation professionals.  RICS will promote the use of the training material among practising valuation professionals and is proud to be able to host the eLearning course on the RICS Online Academy.
