Welcome to Rethink Energy and Design. As manager of the BetterBricks Commercial Design initiative at the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with some of the best minds in the world on sustainable high performance design, and many of those are right here in the Northwest. As a result, BetterBricks is constantly in the flow of information related to energy efficiency in buildings. We also produce a lot of our own. We’d like to share some of that. Rethink Energy and Design is here to provide building professionals a platform to connect, collaborate and otherwise participate in the dialogue around energy and our built environment.
