75F is proud to announce our selection to the prestigious 2021 BNEF Pioneers, a BloombergNEF award that recognizes innovations around the world with tangible potential to accelerate decarbonization and support the energy transition.
Although we hear the word sustainability a lot these days, for many business owners, sustainability is still just a buzzword. As a building owner or manager, maybe you'd like to make improvements toward sustainability, but green building features are still on the "nice to have" list, maybe shuffled behind mechanical and cosmetic upgrades.
But investors don't see it that way anymore – and the numbers show it.
Our friends at the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) outdid themselves this year at the 2018 Minnesota Energy Expo, hosted at the Radisson Blu in Bloomington, Minnesota. Programming spanned three rooms with 13 presentations, including the keynote speaker, ASHRAE National President, Sheila Hayter, plus energy project deployment stories, projections about the future of energy and building automation.
So find a cozy seat and enjoy some of our key takeaways from the 2018 ASHRAE Minnesota Energy Expo!
We all know it, green workspaces are in. Market demand for green buildings continues to double every three years, and the demand is only going up. In 2019, the green building market is expecting to climb from $43 billion to $69 billion in the US alone.
So why is that?
When it comes to making your building more sustainable, you have a wealth of options and resources. Many building owners and managers start by replacing lightbulbs with energy-efficient options like LEDs or CFLs. You could retrofit your HVAC system with smarter sensing and controls, for even greater energy savings impact and overall ROI. And, you could go longer-term and structural – adding solar panels, replacing windows, or even redesigning your building from the ground up. Every step matters – but as a building owner, you want to be able to quantify those changes. That's why we've made a list of certification programs which help score and benchmark your building for sustainability, making it easier to qualify for energy rebates, keep track of your improvements and advertise your building to prospective tenants.
75F Presents: Energy Efficiency Through Affordable & Accessible Building Automation - Electrification 2018
At the Electrification 2018 International Conference and Exposition in Long Beach, CA, 75F CEO Deepinder Singh shared news with the audience of utility and energy program leaders that advanced building automation, including sophisticated energy management capabilities, is now available to the majority of buildings who could not previously afford a BAS or EMS. 75F shared that building owners and managers with buildings under 200,000sf now have an affordable building automation option that delivers significant energy savings through sensing and predictive controls of HVAC and lighting, portfolio energy benchmarking and analysis, OpenADR 2.0 automated demand response, daylight harvesting, and other features to help limit peak demand and enhance overall building energy efficiency.
