GPNA / Green PCA / High Performance Building Assessment (HPB)

EMG Green Financing / Energy AuditEMG can do GREEN! With HUD’s, Fannie Mae’s, and Freddie Mac’s increased focus on energy conservation and green asset management, many new transactions require an assessment of energy consumption efficiency in the form of a Green Property Condition Assessment (PCA) / High Performance Building Assessment (HPB), or a Green Physical Needs Assessment (for HUD). In addition to having worked on thousands of green projects over the past ten years, EMG is one of a handful of approved consultants trusted by Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and HUD to provide Green due diligence services.

Our GPNA, HPB, and Green PCA Reports are similar to the ASTM E2018-05 Baseline Property Condition Report, with the addition of Green elements, including current energy consumption and benchmarking data. Our Energy Benchmarking and Energy Audit Services includes two levels of energy audits:

  • Level I (Walk-through analysis)
  • Level II (Energy survey and analysis)

Both level of reports are completed meeting the nationally recognized ASHRAE standard and the requisite Fannie Mae and/or Freddie Mac Green requirements. EMG Energy Services gives clients the intelligence to create energy management and reduction plans with specific actions to obtain significant short- and long-term cost savings. EMG is the partner of choice to provide Green PCA/ HPB Reports, and GPNAs on HUD, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac transactions.

EMG has worked on thousands of green projects since 2007:
