Green Value Associates goal is to work with its clients to unlock and enhance value in existing real estate and infrastructure assets through the realisation, among other things, of any greener standard and energy efficiency potential as well as sustainable operational effectiveness.
Public Sector

The public sector building market - government, municipalities and regional authorities, universities, schools and hospitals - historically account for the lion’s share of performance-based investments in energy efficiency and operational effectiveness. At the same time, constrained government budgets have made clear to publicly funded bodies and government departments that private sector involvement is crucial for these investments to materialize at the necessary scale.

Therefore, Green Value Associates (GVA) offers advice and guidance to its public sector clients to select the right public private partnerships (PPP) contractual arrangements, funding structures and delivery routes. GVA supports its clients also during the procurement process to choose the appropriate private sector party, who will provide and guarantee the related value added services. GVA also supports its clients to prepare a suitable performance based contract, since conventional construction contracts are not suited for this kind of projects. Any contractual arrangement will need to ensure the private sector party would provide a turnkey service and have the balance sheet to guarantee results.

In arranging project financing, GVA primarily confirms that the retrofit and upgrade capital costs are repaid, at least partially, from the energy and operational savings achieved over the contract term. GVA also helps its clients to seek for project capital in a variety of sources, including European Regional Development Funds (EDRF), International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and dedicated credit lines or even available public revolving loan funds. After securing funding, GVA works with its public sector clients to overcome any remaining bureaucratic barriers that hinder the appropriate private sector involvement in mutually beneficial PPP arrangements.

When considering the technical implementation aspects of energy efficiency and green retrofit measures in existing owned-occupied building assets and facilities, GVA works with technical experts to identify combined opportunities to maximise the reduction of utility, operating and maintenance costs and the improvement of existing infrastructure systems. GVA advises on low carbon technologies and on-site renewable energy solutions that could be repaid entirely with capital collected from generation and savings. GVA also assesses overall reliability and resilience of critical building engineering systems, looking at overall adaptive capacity and vulnerability.

In summary, GVA aims to offer to its public sector clients opportunities for energy and operational efficiency that can lead to cost savings which would open up additional funding for core public programs and needs. To achieve these savings, GVA supports and oversees the implementation of comprehensive localised low carbon energy solutions, green retrofit measures, utility monitoring systems and building enhancement programs that in combination they could improve the overall health, comfort and wellbeing of the public buildings' occupants and users.
