This column takes a look at some of the cutting edge ideas associated with sustainable and high performance buildings.
Hot water heating is the leading application for this technology in buildings, but space heating and cooling are also viable
Using wood chips and other plant materials as fuel can meet heating (and some cooling) needs in suitable facility
Power systems using this technology can drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to energy
In the right locations, this power source provides a way to increase clean energy
The technology is reliable. Now facility managers can focus on funding this clean energy
Drawn from the ground, this energy source can power HVAC needs and supply hot
Tackling the escalating issue of energy consumption and costs may take
While one size does not fit all facilities, this energy purchase strategy can be beneficial for
Regulations on the amount, quality, and type of exterior illumination for buildings are increasingly relevant for facility managers.
