INOVUES has joined the 2022 US Green Building Council Los Angeles (USGBC-LA) cohort of net-zero innovators. The recognition signals our preparedness to scale up our facade retrofit venture.
"We are proud to be recognized by the Los Angeles USGBC and extremely thankful for the opportunity to amplify our sustainability message and reach. Our data shows we can contribute substantial operational carbon savings to many LA buildings – as much as 40% reduction in their energy use. Eliminating wasteful and disruptive demolition is another key benefit. It is exciting to be able to contribute to carbon reduction and net-zero buildings." - Anas Al Kassas, INOVUES Founder and CEO/CTO
The USGBC-LA Net Zero Accelerator (NZA) is the first of its kind in the world. Its objective is to accelerate market adoption of select eco-forward building technologies throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area and beyond. INOVUES attracted attention with our engineered facade retrofit systems. Our patented, demolition-free method to upgrade existing single- and double-glazed windows into multi-layer, high-performance insulated glass units is ideally suited to urban environments with high heating / cooling energy needs and a high concentration of aging, energy-inefficient buildings.
Joining INOVUES, the 2022 Net Zero Accelerator (NZA) cohort includes fourteen additional companies offering a range of climate-tech solutions, from advanced materials to energy and water conservation: Ampd Energy, AquiPor, BamCore, Carbon Upcycling, ElectricFish, Enersion, Feedback Solutions, Glass Dyenamics, Hempitecture, HydroFlux, LeapFrog Design, MeterLeader, Miravel, and Moduly.
