WE'RE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE
OFFICIAL SELECTION TO THE CLEAN FIGHT: BUILDINGS EDITION 2020
These nine companies are making buildings cleaner with breakthrough solutions
that reduce energy usage and emissions, while making life safer, healthier and more comfortable for tenants.
They’re also making it as easy as possible for their solutions to be adopted, opening up access through innovative financing that can reduce upfront costs and guarantee savings.
Last but by no means least, we’re particularly excited by this group as they are poised for scale and ready to make a significant impact, quickly.
Canadian company CarbonCure Technologies saves CO2 from heading into the atmosphere by permanently embedding it into fresh concrete during mixing, resulting in concrete that is both greener and stronger. It only takes one day to retrofit a plant, and costs nothing upfront.
Phase Change Energy Solutions based in Asheboro, N.C., use their unique heat storage materials to keep buildings at a consistent temperature, reducing heating and cooling needs. Their easy-to-install phase change materials absorb heat when temperatures exceed a desired target and release heat when the temperature drops below it. 1-inch stores as much heat as a 24-inch thick block of concrete.
SMART HEAT & AIR
Brooklyn-based BlocPower is bringing financially underserved communities the economic, health, and environmental benefits of greening the heating and cooling of their buildings, through leasing and managing air-source heat pumps with zero upfront costs.
Headquartered near Boston, enVerid Systems is the first air purifying technology to clean indoor air at a molecular level. This not only results in healthier buildings, but massively reduces the need for outdoor air intake traditionally required to maintain air quality, and its resulting heating and cooling demands.
iHandal Energy Solutions headquartered in Malaysia uses its proprietary technology to allow for hyper-efficient temperature control of buildings by capturing wasted heat and recycling it for heating or cooling.
Brooklyn-based Radiator Labs is bringing steam heat into the 21st century with smart radiator covers that disperse and regulate heat, preventing excess energy usage, costs and discomfort from overheating buildings. Plus, it finally allows tenants to control the temperature of their own apartment.
75F based in Bloomington, MN and India, uses sensors and machine learning to pre-emptively manage the heating and cooling of commercial buildings, ensuring people are comfortable and productive while significantly cutting energy use. Designed to work out of the box, it can and has been installed by third graders.
Enertiv based in New York City uses sensors and software to digitize a building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment, enabling equipment-level insights and control to maximize efficiency, resilience and deep energy reduction.
Toronto-based Peak Power’s AI-powered software platform turns buildings into virtual behind-the-meter power plants, helping to make the grid more resilient while unlocking new revenue streams for building owners.
