Addresses common barriers associated with new construction, major renovations, and retrofit projects in high performance schools. The guide summarizes existing methods of financing and looks ahead to innovative, replicable approaches. It supports making a business case for high performance design backed by economic analysis that looks at the costs and benefits of new construction and retrofits over the project's lifetime. It also describes nonenergy benefits that tie energy efficiency and economic feasibility back to the critical mission ensuring a healthy learning environment for students.
