Green Spot Project: informs with real-time data, empowers through participation, and greens your space by tracking positive progress
greEntrance – the software helping real estate companies to find the most efficient green building rating system for their individual needs.
Unless ‘sufficiency’ is addressed with same rigour as ‘efficiency’, energy usage is inadvertently increased resulting in a rebound effect.
Climate adaptive energy conserving commercial building envelopes with analytical tool COFA:Climate Optimized Fenestration Assembly.
Using Existing Governance to make retrofitting enhanced Energy Efficiency into Existing Buildings, Easy.
As high performance green buildings increase in complexity, technicians need the skills to maintain buildings and achieve energy goals.
Stop Waiting: Lighting uses 20% or more of a building’s electricity, and LEDs save 50% on energy and last longer than traditional lights.
If an outsider could collect 100% of the savings of creating an energy efficient building. It would create a market for this kind of work.
Gamification of houses and communities to bet on reducing energy use with the reward of 25 times the bet and star house award from BEE.
The wood from old homes that were used as studs could be recycled and used to make Cross Laminated Timber Panels (CLT).
Existing buildings show a median commissioning cost of US$.27 per ft2, energy savings of 15%, and a simple payback period of .7 years.
All homes and buildings should be required to have at least 1/4 power from solar.
Low cost, high carbon capturing efficiency, readily available algae growing kit, engineered to a self-sustainable business model.
