What is CarbonBlue?
CarbonBlue serves as a parking lot and environmental filter while reducing energy costs for nearby complex, Carbon6, and overall reliance on the energy grid. The project was developed by our Concepts team to help transition to cleaner energy sources in a wholistic and integrative way.
An Integrated Solution
The Walas team was concerned about the energy use of Carbon6. Leveraging the spacious parking lot area, they came up with a comprehensive solution that addressed parking requirements for the nearby public transit hub and community while improving financial and environmental performance of the complex.
CarbonBlue will feed clean energy into the adjacent building complex as well as charging stations for electric vehicles. This will meet an expected 30% of the energy demand of the Carbon6 complex. Mounting panels on an elevated structure that covers the lot will solve the problem of the solar panel placement, and provide filtered light during the day, capture rain water, clean the surrounding air and water, create jobs and provide a green retreat for the community. All while making the project economically profitable. New business models including a car wash and energy storage will add to the financial success.
