ULI’s Tenant Energy Optimization Program (TEOP) helps owners, tenants and other stakeholders work together to integrate energy efficiency into tenant space design and construction to achieve excellent returns in the form of energy conservation and cost savings. The foundation of the program is a ten-step process that details best practices for sustainable tenant spaces in the pre-lease, design and construction, and post-occupancy phases, proven to work in ten pilot case studies. TEOP also aligns with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star Tenant Space recognition and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Green Lease Leaders program.
TEOP 10-Step Process for an Energy Efficient Office Fit-Out
Achieving Energy Star Tenant Space for your office fit-out is a great way to earn recognition for leadership in energy efficiency for leased spaces. Led by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the recognition designates tenant spaces as highly energy efficient. But how do you achieve such efficiency in a fit-out? The Urban Land Institute’s Tenant Energy Optimization Program (TEOP) process can help. TEOP walks fit-out stakeholders through a 10-step process to achieve deep energy and financial savings in leased office spaces. From pre-lease, through design and construction, to post-occupancy, the TEOP 10 steps ensure that energy efficiency is cost-effectively included from beginning to end.
