“ I can’t thank you enough for coming last night. I got so much out of your clear and informed presentation and I know I’m definitely not the only one.

I just really can’t say enough how much I appreciate your time.” -Jen Ball, Professor of Sociology, Humber College
“Thanks so much again for taking the time to present to the municipalities on Friday. I think it went really well. People are starting to come around that net zero emissions is doable at competitive costs, which is fantastic, as I know a lot of municipalities are updating their corporate green development standards and we want to move them towards net zero emissions as the new goal. Thank you for you support on this and for being so generous with your time and knowledge. Speak to you soon.” -Gaby (Gabriella) Kalapos, Executive Director, Clean Air Partnership

Climate solutions. A simplified understanding of our priorities and effective planning tools for individuals and organizations. How to save our planet, while flourishing personally and professionally.
BUILDINGS: How passive house technology, heat pumps, ERVs and prefab panels are being used in affordable housing projects in Portland, Boston Woodstock, and Ottawa to dramatically reduce operating costs, and improve healthy outcomes.
TRANSPORT: How electric fleet vehicles significantly decrease municipal GHG footprints, fuel and maintenance costs in New York City, Vancouver, and elsewhere.
RENEWABLE POWER: How batteries/microgrids are an exploding private sector solution for peak shaving. How energy storage and software is being used for load management for islanded campus resilience in NY & California, eliminating crippling diesel costs for remote communities in Coleville Lake and the Scilly islands, and for utility cyber security in Ukraine.
BUILDINGS: How ground source (geothermal) and water source heating & cooling at Universities in Massachusetts, New York, and Montreal institutions and work beautifully for district cooling and heating. Also: water conservation technology, solar for school rooftops, AI for energy savings in smart buildings, enhanced reality for construction efficiencies in green buildings, conservation and natural refrigerants in arenas, guaranteed energy savings for government projects, clean energy funding, incentive models, and more.
