About Us

Overview

qodef-image-with-icon

The SRS leadership team is comprised of veterans with 25+ years’ experience in the commercial and industrial (C&I) real estate information services market with a proven track record for developing industry leading products and market-making solutions.

 

In 2010 SRS pioneered new on-demand C&I building energy and sustainability performance assessment, benchmarking, underwriting and measurement and verification solutions through its Sustainable Real Estate Manager® platform. The deep experience and related expertise gained over the following years led the Connecticut Green Bank (CGB) to select SRS to implement its ground-breaking Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) statewide program.

 

On behalf of CGB, SRS drafted the program guidelines in 2012 and led a pioneering effort in 2013 to deploy the industry’s first repeatable and scalable C-PACE project origination process through the contractor channel. To effectively manage contractor outreach, education and project origination workflows, SRS developed the PACEworx™ Platform. The PACEworx™ Platform facilitates the data-intensive C-PACE program management process across the entire project life cycle – from project initiation through technical and financial underwriting, financing, commissioning and measurement and verification. This state-of-the-art platform, market tested over the past several years by leading commercial and public building energy efficiency and renewable energy investment stakeholders around the country, has proven crucial to the requirements for consistency, quality control and transparency.

 

In addition to SRS’s unique technology-enhanced tools, SRS employs a highly skilled staff who provide in-depth technical support services to C-PACE stakeholders (contractors, building owners, mortgage holders and capital providers) to ensure their project underwriting requirements are met. This winning combination of market-driven technology and skilled staff has resulted in the origination, development, optimization and technical review on hundreds of C-PACE projects valued at over $120 million – a level unmatched elsewhere in the industry.
