Ramandeep Kaur analyzed energy-saving opportunities in JLL’s corporate real estate portfolio.


JLL is a financial and professional services firm that specializes in commercial real estate services and investment management. JLL is one of world's largest real estate firms, with over 58,000 employees across 230 corporate offices spread across more than 80 countries. This summer, Ramandeep Kaur worked as EDF Climate Corps fellow with JLL’s Energy and Sustainability Services (ESS) team. ESS helps JLL clients be more sustainable, use less energy and reduce real estate costs. The goal of Kaur's fellowship with ESS was to identify, analyze and quantify savings from energy-saving opportunities in JLL’s corporate real estate portfolio and among JLL-managed client properties.


Given JLL’s large client base, Kaur researched various rebates and incentives provided by utilities and vendors and identified easily implementable energy-saving opportunities. Her projects involved finding energy and cost saving opportunities through web based research, data analysis, Energy Star certifications, LED retrofit projects, plug load control, demand response and rebate analysis.

Potential Impact

Over their lifetimes, these projects could potentially result in cumulative cost savings of approximately $5 million for JLL clients. These projects could also help JLL clients reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by 100 metric tons, and energy consumption by 250,000 kilowatt hours.
