Using Existing Governance to make retrofitting enhanced Energy Efficiency into Existing Buildings, Easy.
Unless ‘sufficiency’ is addressed with same rigour as ‘efficiency’, energy usage is inadvertently increased resulting in a rebound effect.
Stop Waiting: Lighting uses 20% or more of a building’s electricity, and LEDs save 50% on energy and last longer than traditional lights.
As high performance green buildings increase in complexity, technicians need the skills to maintain buildings and achieve energy goals.
greEntrance – the software helping real estate companies to find the most efficient green building rating system for their individual needs.
Green Spot Project: informs with real-time data, empowers through participation, and greens your space by tracking positive progress
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.
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.
Climate adaptive energy conserving commercial building envelopes with analytical tool COFA:Climate Optimized Fenestration Assembly.
Innovative financing for small-scale energy efficiency projects. Each penny saved is invested in a sustainable local community.
Use deep cold sea water as an air conditioning source for buildings along coastline and perhaps a few miles inland.
Imagine we don't know anything about room thermostats and we design one from the beginning. Would we end up to the thermostats we use now?
Incorperate Solar Cells into the upper twenty % of major buildings on the East and West sides in order to reduce energy grid consumption.
I've noticed that metropolitan buildings near coastlines focus wind down corridors, perhaps windmills can be attached to these structures.
Most waste CO2 buildings put out is in production. 15 million new buildings are expected by 2015. Retrofitting with clean energy solves this
Existing buildings show a median commissioning cost of US$.27 per ft2, energy savings of 15%, and a simple payback period of .7 years.
