Acquisition Due Diligence
Sieben Energy Associates assists investors with due diligence prior to property acquisition. Buildings that waste energy are a business risk, particularly given the volatile but generally increasing cost of energy. The future cost of operations may also be impacted by state, regional, or national legislation or regulation in response to climate change. Now more than ever, energy is an important factor to consider when buying or selling a facility.
An acquisition analysis, which is similar to an energy audit, mitigates exposure to these risks by revealing a building’s true energy consumption and cost characteristics. Standard due diligence reports provide insight into energy and sustainability risks. Comprehensive reports, in addition the material from standard reports, also provide detailed recommendations for reductions in energy use. Our engineers deliver assurance around energy and may even demonstrate opportunities for future energy cost reduction in the event that you do purchase the building.
