In human history, there have been three distinct phases that advanced civilization. As the climate crisis worsens and technology improves a new wave is emerging… the Fourth Wave.
The Science is Clear
CO2 is being released into the atmosphere faster than at any time in the last 66 million years.
Greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels are warming our planet and throwing natural systems out of balance.
Hotter temperatures, stronger storms, and rising seas are threatening the health of our families and future generations.
40% of the nation’s total energy is used by buildings.
62% of electricity used in buildings is generated from natural gas and coal-fired power plants.
We deliver integrated energy-efficient design, high-performance components, and rigorous construction standards.
Fossil fuel-free, healthy living is achieved by ensuring that buildings have a tight building envelope, dynamically monitor and control air flow and filtration, and harness all their power from the earth, air, and sun.
We deliver net zero energy results in retrofits and new construction.
Dirty fossil fuels have become so entrenched in powering our lives that the opportunity to transition society to clean renewable energy solutions is nearly endless.
Only 0.01% of housing units in the U.S. are zero energy, but demand is growing. All new homes should be built to high energy efficiency energy standards, but the real opportunity to make a huge impact is to decarbonize existing homes.
Commercial & Industrial
While 62% of office buildings could achieve net-zero, only 1% of buildings are retrofit annually.
