About Us

Building Energy Performance Assessment News™ (BEPAnews™), a service of Buonicore Partners, Inc., (see bios) was formed by real estate professionals to fill a market information void by focusing on energy performance and management as it impacts U.S. commercial property. BEPAnews’s goal is to keep commercial real estate professionals and those servicing the commercial real estate industry informed on energy-related issues impacting property and provide a platform to share experiences and learn from each other.   

Our newsletter and website are designed specificaly for commercial real estate professionals operating in a highly competitive market, cost management is crucial to maintain and increase asset value. In today’s hyper-inflated energy market, energy costs have become one of the largest, yet most manageable, of these operating expenses.  

While LEED certification is gaining marketplace momentum and is a worthy goal, the path to certification goes right through building energy efficiency, as does the path to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The good news is that increased energy efficiency goes right to the bottom line and provides the best opportunity for increasing the ROI in owner-occupied buildings. For rental properties, the day is quickly coming where energy efficient buildings will have a distinct competitive advantage in an ever more challenging market.  

Beyond the immediate cost savings, efficient energy management also contributes to a building’s “greenness,” which can be highly attractive to potential tenants. Lastly, reducing traditional energy costs is a key for a building to become LEED-certified or obtain an Energy Star rating from EPA.   

Buonicore Partners, Inc. is a subsidiary of Sustainable Real Estate Solutions, Inc.

BEPAnews is devoted exclusively to energy conservation in Commercial Real Estate. JOIN the conversation with the thousands of subscribers who view our news.
