Shaping tomorrow with clean energy

At Lumen Energy, our mission is to unlock the potential of clean energy technologies for millions of buildings. In the modern era, the conversation about our planet is shifting. Amidst a sea of data and dialogue, one thing stands clear: clean energy is crucial, not just for the environment but for the economic fabric of our communities. And at the heart of this transition lies the commercial real estate sector.

The carbon footprint of CRE

Commercial buildings account for about 16% of the U.S.'s greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 30% of energy consumption. It's not just a staggering statistic; it's a call to action for the commercial real estate industry.

The rising cost of energy

Over the past decade, energy costs from traditional utilities have been on a consistent upward trajectory. It's not just an economic challenge, but a strategic one. Adopting clean energy solutions is no longer a luxury – it's becoming a necessity to ensure sustained profitability.
