The Retail Energy Assessment Program

ABOUT REAP

REAP is an AI based software and rating system used to predict and measure retail tenancy energy and
related carbon emission and compare it to similar tenancy types. The result is communicated in a NABERS / ENERGY STAR style 6 Star Rating scale.

This program is specific to retailers and landlords, to understand how their tenancy operations impact the environment. It engages users in real-time on the actions they can take to reduce and save.
The platform and rating is suitable for application in both development and operational settings. It can be used to “predict and target” in development settings and “rate existing and improve” in operational settings.

WHY REAP

Australian retail occupies 14% of non-commercial area and yet accounts for 41% of the emissions footprint. It is 4-10 times more carbon intense than most other commercial space and yet remains virtually un-regulated due to perceived complexity. Australian retail also has the most expensive operational cost base in the world, putting extraordinary pressure on retailers from the go-get, and we want to see this change.

Over the last ten years, we have assessed and validated over 2,000 retail tenancies, providing the most comprehensive, reliable and accurate rating system for retail in the world.

We have developed this software system to reduce the cost of tenancy delivery by over 75%. Star Ratings and heat load calculations are achieved at a fraction of the time and thus cost – meaning less pressure and more value generation for tenants and landlords.

 

IMPLEMENTING REAP

The platform and rating is suitable for application in both development and operational settings. It can be used to “predict and target” in development settings and “rate existing and improve” in operational settings. It can be either tenant or landlord driven, and asset based dashboards and validation capabilities are possible.

ABOUT TFC AND REAP

We have been frustrated by the cost barriers to retail tenant engagement on energy efficiency and this platform and rating is built to address these issues.
Our vision is an environment where REAP is the standard for leading responsible landlords, developers and
retailers to drive environmental and carbon efficiency forward. The results we have delivered using this system in partnership with Lendlease, The GPT Group, Sekesui and Investa show that 20-40% commercial efficiency improvement is real and available across all tenancy types. It is built on the robust methodology enshrined in NABERS to provide confidence.
