While a building's energy expense is typically up to 30 pct of its operating cost, energy intensity and cost have not historically been included in the building appraisal or pro forma. As a result, mortgage underwriters have not generally included this information in the underwriting process. With building energy data and benchmarking data becoming more and more available -- 25 of the largest U.S. cities and California presently require energy disclosure -- it will be easier for appraisers and underwriters to include these data in their evaluation process. If energy efficiency can be correlated to mortgage default rates, it could have a significant impact on energy disclosure and possibly even mortgage interest rates.

The study analyzed 17 policies adopted by various states relating to climate and energy. States that adopted a mandatory policy for power plants to register and report greenhouse gas emissions showed the largest reductions, at an average of 2.6 million metric tons of CO2 emissions per year.
The second most significant policy involved public benefit funds allotted for energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. That policy was associated with a reduction of 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions from power plants.
The study is unclear on whether one of these single policies was the actual driver of the reduction in emissions, or an indicator that a state takes climate change mitigation seriously and is attacking the issue on many fronts, the report authors claim.
For instance, three states -- New York, Connecticut and Oregon -- have each adopted both of the top two most effective policies, along with at least eight others.
Georgia, on the other hand, has adopted only one state policy to curb power plant emissions -- calling for voluntary reporting of emissions. Emissions are on the rise in Georgia, along with several other states that had adopted a voluntary reporting policy, the analysis showed.
