Bloomberg’s New Energy Outlook predicts that “wind and solar are set to surge to 50 percent of world generation by 2050.” Renewable energy offers real estate developers the opportunity to lower operating expenses and boost revenue by reducing, or in some cases, even eliminating utility expenditures. The September breakfast will explore current trends and technologies in the energy sector and how renewable energies may offer advantages for Texas development. Panelists will share the newest funding mechanisms, discuss implementation practices and provide a glimpse into what the future holds for renewable energies in the real estate industry.
