Refrigeration is a massive energy suck in commercial and industrial buildings. So much so that tremendous effort has been put into measures to reduce energy use in refrigeration systems across the country. Even though the industry has worked tirelessly to install system controls, there is still a long way to go. Our research team has continued to look for more aggressive solutions in the refrigeration world. More

Curiosity has been a constant companion for Andy. From learning traditional sustainability practices from indigenous people in the Ecuadorian Andes, to transportation planning, to spending six years installing solar in the San Francisco Bay Area, to a double master’s degree centered on energy analysis and policy, and now to Seventhwave. He believes facts are dry without their possibilities and the promise that abundant energy balanced with wise use of technology keeps him focused on what hides in data. More

Rodney Dangerfield died almost 15 years ago but the legacy of “no respect” lives on in the minds of energy geeks looking to catch a headline. He may be best known for one-liners involving some form of “I don’t get no respect!” Proponents of different energy sources have used this tag line to relate to and ask the commons for more of what Rodney never got enough of for their favorite energy source. Why are proponents of energy sources eager for awareness by continuing to invoke this image? More

In honor of Energy Efficiency Day today, Friday, Oct. 5, we reflect on the ways Wisconsin, the home of our headquarters, can learn from our more progressive western neighbors. Many states out west are decades ahead of Wisconsin in terms of energy efficiency and moving toward 100% clean electricity. Two of our experts had the opportunity to live and work in California and Colorado previously. Andy Lick, research analyst, resided in California for several years, and Brett Bridgeland, project manager, lived in Colorado. More
