The traditional metrics of reductions in site energy, source energy, and energy costs - that have served as benchmarks for high-performance buildings for decades – no longer provide a comprehensive picture of a building’s true environmental impact. Greenhouse gas emissions intensity (GHGI) associated with building energy use is, given what we know, the pertinent metric to quantify building operational performance. Read how Elementa Engineering Principal Shreshth… Read more⇒


Today’s designs pursue lofty performance goals for people, place, and planet. How can analytics support these goals while minimizing cost and complexity? Shaping the built environment involves a broad range of design considerations – from resource efficiency and green infrastructure to urban amenity and occupant satisfaction. Early intervention informed by targeted analytics can unlock high-performance design and protect stakeholders from costly retrofits, program delays, and… Read more⇒


Around the world, companies are making pledges to rapidly decarbonize. Battery storage will help make those promises reality. While the building industry continues to strive for Net Zero Energy goals, recent policies requiring all-electric building design are shifting the focus away from energy and onto carbon emissions. It is now more important than ever to consider how buildings will integrate with the carbon emissions goals… Read more⇒


What does wellness in the workplace look like in a COVID-19 reality? The British Council for Offices sets the global benchmark for Class A Office Space. In 2018 it launched Wellness Matters - an outcomes-based roadmap to support health and wellbeing in the workplace. Its three lead authors - Ed Garrod, James Pack, and Will Poole-Wilson came together to revisit its guidance, providing unique insights into… Read more⇒

The term Net Zero is gaining traction globally – but what does it mean to be truly Net Zero? Born from challenges of different local standards and approaches to this question, Elementa Consulting initiated the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) in 2017 to change London’s Energy Policy, a system that was failing to keep up with a rapidly decarbonizing electricity grid. Through determination and collaboration,… Read more⇒


District energy systems are gaining momentum across the globe. As traditional “heating-only” systems no longer meet current needs, Integral Group has developed innovative, “next generation” district energy solutions that offer stellar environmental performance. These systems provide both heating and cooling, flexibility to accommodate “low-carbon” and “low-exergy” sources, and cutting-edge energy conversion technologies. Using our local and global case studies, this presentation will introduce the “next… Read more⇒
