"GEM": The Word on the Street
Finally! Green Energy Money provides the knowledge and tools to provide the economic case for energy efficiency and sustainability in a way that financial institutions, the missing link in our value proposition, can understand. Teresa has done a fantastic job of devising a tool that captures the quantitative value of energy efficiency improvements to new and existing homes, leveraging tools that the appraisal industry (the other missing link) already uses. I highly recommend this book and advise my builder clients to get on board.

The Green Energy Money financial tools and valuation methods add tremendous value to our HERS Index and building performance analytic certifications. We are motivated to support GEM in their development of economic solutions to provide ‘true’ cost benefits to building owners across the country. Now our energy rating and building science industry finally has a way to provide the financial markets with the ability to quantify their risk and financially reward building owners with incentivized high-performance building loans and appraisals necessary for mass market adoption.
