Creating value for your building, the environment, and the community
RENU is leading the transition to a carbon neutral built environment.
We deliver decarbonized energy retrofits to existing real estate assets.
Climate action starts with improving energy performance within the built environment.
40% of energy produced
70% of electricity produced in the U.S.
They account for nearly
40% of annual global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
12% of direct GHG emissions in the U.S.
State and local governments are committing to meeting greenhouse gas reduction targets, while property owners confront additional legislative and financial burdens associated with greater environmental responsibility. The requirements are still evolving, and RENU allows owners and operators to stay ahead of the environmental regulations.
RENU’s comprehensive approach provides a carbon neutral transition for the built environment.
Our innovative solutions improve property values, decreases utility and maintenance costs, and achieves carbon neutrality at no additional expense to owners, management, or tenants.
Owners and operators benefit from:
- Utility and Energy Savings
- Reduced Maintenance/Operation
- Decarbonized Asset Standard
- Improved Energy Resiliency
- State-of-the-Art Energy Equipment

Consumers are increasingly concerned about climate change and their own carbon footprints. Businesses and state and municipal governments representing a significant portion of the population have committed to broad greenhouse gas reduction targets.
Our cutting-edge HVAC infrastructure provides better indoor air quality and energy performance.
How It Works
We decarbonize the built environment by lowering energy demand through comprehensive retrofits, infrastructure upgrades, electrification, and on-site/off-site renewable power generation.
Property Assessment & Energy Analysis
We perform comprehensive analyses on existing properties to determine the best combination of energy performance technologies. We can then provide a customized roadmap to achieving specified carbon reduction and financial goals.
Design Study & Implementation
Our team designs onsite energy systems best suited for carbon neutrality. We consider the application of battery storage capacity, solar, and our proprietary geothermal model (GeoGrid™). If necessary, additional energy needs can be generated with local, off-site renewables. We create the optimal financial structure and cooperative relationships between the property owner, the utility, and state and local governments.
Energy Management & Maintenance
Once the new equipment and energy infrastructure is fully installed, our Energy Management system provides continuous monitoring on a per household/ business basis. Real-time data yields energy insights and underscores new opportunities for ongoing optimization.
RENU In Action
Over the next 30 years, the current RENU portfolio is projected to save
of CO2 from our atmosphere
Our projects will save the energy equivalent of:
Carbon sequestered by 332,000 acres of forest
Greenhouse gas emissions from 713,000,000 passenger vehicles’ miles
CO2 emissions from 312,000,000 pounds of coal
