As we head into the new year, it’s highly recommended to review your intentions and goals in the energy efficiency industry. What is working? What can be improved? What are the major changes that may affect the way we sell?
This recent write-up on Fast Company caught my attention since it explores how technology can change the way we design more energy-efficient buildings. Aside from “operational carbon”- which many of my teachings focus on- there is also “embodied carbon,” which refers to an architect’s proposed building materials. With the help of a new LCA tool, Tally, making more energy-efficient choices can now be considered during energy-efficient design as well as improvements! Let’s just say that in 2020, tools like Tally are an exciting step in the right direction.
