Building Decarbonization

Residential and commercial buildings account for 40% of all energy-related GHG emissions*. To reduce these emissions, we need do more than decrease energy consumption – we must actively move to eliminate onsite fossil fuel consumption and harmful emissions from building construction and operations. This change comes with challenges such as making fuel switching affordable, onboarding new technologies and ensuring the changes collectively benefit the grid, rather than strain it.

VEIC will work with you to meet your energy and environmental goals using our comprehensive approach that has helped utilities, energy offices, communities and businesses move towards decarbonized buildings and a more flexible grid. We design our programs to support a sustainable energy system while making adoption easy for end-use customers.

Building decarbonization, and specifically electrification, requires innovative technologies and creative solutions. We offer clients both. We work with partners at every level of the supply chain to bring the most energy-efficient and cost-effective equipment to the market. From helping to deploy high-performance electric heat pump and biomass heating in multiple regions, including cold climates, to developing programs that bring net-zero homes to low-income communities, we're committed to finding solutions that work for every region and deliver value to customers and clients alike.

When you need an experienced partner who can help you overcome obstacles to deploy smart building decarbonization strategies, VEIC is ready. Here's how we can help.
