Net-Zero Energy Services
August 24, 2023
With climate change at the forefront of global concerns, there is a worldwide movement toward carbon neutrality. To meet climate goals, building owners and managers need to not only reduce their carbon footprint but also increase the energy efficiency of their spaces. Partnering with a knowledgeable team of experts can help streamline this process, providing clients with cost savings, improved indoor air quality, increased market value, and regulatory compliance in addition to the environmental benefits.
The architects, engineers, and construction professionals at Rimkus are uniquely qualified to assist with the optimization of buildings. Utilizing innovative technologies and smart design strategies, supported by years of valuable industry experience, we provide a comprehensive suite of sustainable solutions for the built environment.
The process of converting to carbon neutrality involves conducting building energy and envelope audits, implementing energy-efficient measures, installing renewable energy sources, and monitoring and managing energy consumption. Rimkus offers energy benchmarking assessments, energy audits, and other investigative services to help clients understand their path toward net-zero.
Commercial office buildings consume large amounts of energy for lighting, heating, cooling, and other purposes, making them a key target for reducing carbon footprints. Converting to net-zero energy consumption is a way to address this challenge. Net-zero energy buildings are designed to produce as much energy as they consume, using a combination of energy-efficient technologies, renewable energy sources, and smart building design.
On our blog, Gregory R. Gilson, Director, Rimkus Energy and Resilience Practice, explores how commercial office buildings are converted to net-zero energy and why building owners should consider the option.
