ENERTIA® is about Solutions - permanent solutions, in an industry still locked in the methods of the last century: house-building. Some are specific solutions to problems brought to us by clients. Some are universal solutions to well publicized global problems, like Climate-Change. Usually we quietly produce practical affordable solutions to problems still considered un-solvable. All of them will save more than they cost.
Early in this solutions process we identified and named, a new source of energy: Enertia®-Energy from a-shift-in-time. To use Enertia® to heat and cool houses without fuel or electricity we created a new form of Architecture: Double-Shell ,Mass Timber houses that heat and cool by natural geothermal convection, and are strong enough that they won’t go into the atmosphere and ocean as debris during the inevitable storms during their long life.
Our material, Mass Timber, is renewable and renews so fast that our use grows back in minutes, cleaning the atmosphere of CO2 while it renews. Our technology and architecture is the result of discovering that our local “TarHeel” Southern Yellow Pine could store thermal energy: www.enertia.com/about.html
Nearly all the dire predictions that frighten humanity, assume that there won’t be solutions. That is not true - we take them on and solve them, usually with the proprietary new energy source we discovered and named. If it involves buildings, our specialty, we apply Enertia® Architecture, an new form of architecture where the structure itself stores and releases energy. Common sense and economy are our guiding principles - innovative because we are playing with a deck no one else seems to understand.
The Earth spins on. There is boundless Enertia®. But if you can’t store it and shift it, it is gone, forever (Entropy). ENERTIA®, a new word, covers all forms of time-shifted energy, just like LASER, a new word, covered all forms of light-amplification energy. Sometimes, just naming, causes a concept to take off.
