Sustainability and LEED

Sustainability has been defined as ďthe ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their own needs. Kube Solutions using energy from the earth and efficiently uses energy during operation so that nothing is wasted or expelled into the environment.

Kube Solutions manufacturers heat pumps to make hot and chilled water and, in specialized applications, to make ice in hockey and curling rinks or in the thermal ice storage tanks. The heat pumps are designed for use in integrated systems to provide cooling in one area, and to use the heat produced in the cooling process in another area of the building or in an adjacent building. If the hot or chilled water canít be used directly, itís used to heat or cool thermal mass, so a portion of the heating or cooling energy can be used when itís needed later. This integrated systems uses 60% to 80% less energy than conventional systems.
