Supporting a complex and challenging energy transition

The building industry is in the midst of a complex energy transition, driven by evolving public policies and market demands. While sustainable thermal energy systems often have the lowest total lifetime cost and emissions, they generally have significantly higher upfront costs compared to the industry’s “business as usual” options. Additionally, sustainable thermal energy systems are significantly more complex to operate and maintain, which can lead to lower than expected real world performance and higher than expected costs for owners. Learn how Connect’s win/win/win approach to “utilitization” provides solutions for real estate developers and building owners.
