    The Difference Between Energy (kWh) and Power (kW)

    Electricity costs for most commercial buildings are based both on the maximum power and the total amount of energy you use. Power and energy are different concepts, with very different costs, yet financiers, journalists, and pretty much everyone struggles to differentiate them.

    Achieving Carbon Neutrality: Allowances

    There is another way to achieve carbon neutrality that is little know about in business circles but well regarded in the energy and environmental community. They care called carbon allowances. Like Renewable Energy Certificates, carbon allowances have as a strong suit that they are verifiable. They are also limited in number, and cleared through the government and therefore much less susceptible to fraud.

    Why Thermodynamics Matters for Buildings

    Using the principles of thermodynamics, we can keep people comfortable in a building while using energy in smarter ways. Thermodynamics teaches us numerous tradeoffs and rules that allow us to get the right temperature in the right place at the right time for the least amount of energy.
