Sefaira is today the leader in software for high-performance building design. Using Sefaira, architects and other building designers now have the real time analysis capabilities that enable them to practice Performance-Based Design. This enables designers to create buildings that have the very best performance characteristics in terms of energy use, daylighting quality, carbon emissions, thermal comfort, construction and operating costs.
Sefaira won the 2013 Sustainability Leaders Innovation Award and the 2013 ENDS Green Economy – Green Data Award. It has been named to the 2013 Global Cleantech 100, the 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global and the 2012 Going Green Global Top 200 private companies. Sefaira has offices in London and New York.

HEVO Power will provide opportunistic charging, known as Green​ Park​ing Zones​,​for city dwellers and commuters gearing up to purchase a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle. These static and quasi-dynamic wireless charging locations provide cost savings and emission reduction benefits for both vehicle owners and municipalities. HEVO’s wireless solution also eliminates the hassle and potential liability risk of an​EV power cord in an urban setting. Incredibly convenient–once you park, your car will start powering up​ right away.

Illinois Clean Fuels is a large-scale synthetic fuel plant under development in central Illinois. The project will produce 414,000,000 gallons per year of ultra-clean diesel and jet fuel from a combination of municipal garbage, biomass, and coal. The project is designed at a full commercial scale, for direct toe-to-toe competition with oil down to $40/bbl, with no reliance on subsidy. We use only proven and scaled commercial off-the-shelf process technologies. Through the combination of biomass feedstocks and carbon capture and storage technology, the project should be the first in the world capable of producing diesel and jet fuels with a negative lifecycle carbon footprint (physically pulling carbon from the air, and locking it in the ground, net-net, for every gallon burned), making the plant a true market-driven commercially-scaled climate solution. Biomass sourcing will be done through the development of a network of European-style zero-waste-to-landfill recycling facilities. The combination of market competitive production costs, bankable process engineering, full compatibility with renewable feedstocks (current and future), non-reliance on subsidy, and climate-friendly design, make the ICF project a key demonstration of the future of renewable fuel productionAgenda:
