Retrofit Industry Needs Assessment Study
The Retrofit Industry Needs Assessment Study is a part of RMI’s RetroFit Depot. Over the next 3–5 years, the RMI RetroFit team will create and execute new approaches to accelerating deep retrofits in commercial buildings. The project aims to retrofit at least 500 buildings within three years and stimulate far greater retrofit activity within the larger retrofit industry. As part of this initiative, RMI partnered with Pike Research, a firm specializing in clean technology market intelligence, to conduct original research on the industry via direct contact with stakeholders in the commercial building sector. The purpose of the study was to assess what information key stakeholders in the commercial building sector in the U.S. need in order to pursue deep energy efficiency retrofits.
