While the latest sustainable technologies are usually associated with a lower carbon footprint or natural resource burden, they may be considered “risky” to deploy. The most important risk factors center around up-front costs, performance promises, unintended consequences, equipment maintenance, and difficulty obtaining regulatory approvals. These issues can surface in new construction and retrofits of existing buildings. Conventional project contracts and warranties, as well as tenant leases, often do not clearly allocate risk and responsibility for items like new green technologies, energy usage, and operation and maintenance of green features (just as examples). Therefore, it is critical to understand the legal and financial areas of concern.
