IRVINE, CA—Governor Brown’s aggressive goals for doubling the energy efficiency of existing buildings by 2030 will continue to drive new technologies, Irvine Co.’s VP of energy management Rich Bluth tells GlobeSt.com. The development firm owns and operates the most ENERGY STAR-certified offices of any building owner in the nation, and three of the company’s new buildings—two at its “NextGen” Sand Canyon Business Center here and Eastgate Terrace (9779 Kettner) in La Jolla, CA—were among only 10 new developments nationwide to become “Designed to Earn the Energy STAR” certified in 2016.
