SRS Overview

The Sustainable Real Estate Solutions, Inc. (SRS) leadership team, comprised of veterans with 25+ years’ experience in the commercial real estate information services market, has a proven track record developing cutting edge technology solutions. Since 2010, SRS has pioneered new cloud-based building energy performance assessment, project optimization, and investment underwriting solutions through its proprietary software, data and analytics platform.

In 2012, based on SRS’s deep experience in the commercial property energy efficiency industry, the Connecticut Green Bank selected SRS to support the development and implementation of the country’s first statewide Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program. C-PACE programs are designed to overcome the barrier of significant upfront costs for energy efficiency projects by offering commercially attractive financing.

In such programs, projects are typically designed so that the estimated energy cost savings over the useful life of the improvements outweigh the investment. SRS’s challenge and responsibility was to develop a technology-enabled energy efficiency project development, optimization, and quality assurance underwriting process designed to meet three key objectives:

Empower contractors and project developers with the tools to estimate the energy savings and financial impacts of their proposed projects

Provide project quality assurance underwriting to determine financing eligibility according to program guidelines and industry best practices

Educate contractors on how to integrate estimated energy savings and project financial impacts into their standard proposal and project development process.

Today this state-of-the-art software, data, and analytics platform is used by thousands of contactors nationwide to develop, optimize, and sell building energy improvement projects. Moreover, the nationally recognized success of this groundbreaking program resulted in SRS being retained by numerous state and local governments seeking to implement similar programs in their jurisdictions. As a result, SRS has become the leader in C-PACE program administration services in the United States.

After the successful deployment of its software platform in C-PACE programs nationwide, SRS has democratized these unique, experience-based capabilities by offering its Energy Performance Improvement Calculator (EPIC) software, data, and analytics solution to assist the broader energy efficiency contracting and project development markets.
