Real estate and energy transition

"Building and adapting our cities, one conversation at a time"

- A podcast by the Urban Development Institute of Quebec


Our president, Philippe Hudon, is extremely delighted to have been invited to the fifth episode of this podcast, an initiative of UDI - the Urban Development Institute of Quebec.

In this episode, the CEO of IDU, Isabelle Melançon, and our president discuss notably the impacts of instability and rising energy costs on real estate developers and managers.

The climate crisis has changed the landscape in real estate. This episode urges us to base our development plans on probable scenarios of energy market evolution rather than the stable perspective of surpluses, which is now obsolete.

This allows for consolidating the business case behind your decarbonization plans by:
✓ Incorporating future energy cost increases into your financial projections;
✓ Planning long-term investments to avoid replacing the same equipment multiple times;
✓ Establishing partnerships with decarbonization-committed funds willing to offer more favorable terms to facilitate investments that reduce their climate risks.

By combining our expertise, let's negotiate a safe transition towards carbon neutrality.
