Energy efficiency in buildings has an impact on the evaluated market values. According to a study of the US department of Energy (DOE), commercial buildings waste 30% of the energy paid for on average. This wasted energy was estimated at around 61 billion dollars for 2007. Based on a capitalization rate of 8%, the lost asset value amounts to approximately $750 billion.
