Provides information on a range of mechanisms for overcoming the split incentive problem as a barrier to investment in energy efficiency upgrades, and sharing the benefits of the upgrade between the building owner and tenants.

Split incentives occur when those responsible for paying energy bills (the tenant) are not the same entity as those making capital investment decisions (the landlord).

Intended for the use of building owners, leasing agents, tenants and environmental consultants.
