In this episode, host Greg Smithies joins Jason Gregory, Co-Founder of EnergyRM. The two chat about how building owners and tenants have misaligned incentives to invest in energy efficient retrofits, and Jason shares how EnergyRM’s platform allows a building owner's investment into energy efficiency to be recovered as rent payment.

Greg Smithies is a Partner on the Climate Technology Investment team at Fifth Wall, the largest venture capital firm focused on technology-driven innovation for the global real estate industry. EnergyRM is a clean energy fintech firm working to align the incentives for building operators, owners, and tenants to install clean energy retrofits.
