Welcome to Northshore
Building Energy Performance
Northshore was founded to sustainably support the internet and positively impact infrastructure performance. We provide a data driven solution that has been specifically designed for data centers with robust and integrative analytics at our core.
Central to our performance optimization efforts, we provide accurate, validated building information to our clients. With validated building information, stakeholders at all levels and at any business function can utilize precise, trustworthy information to drive critical infrastructure improvements. By moving up the technology stack, we offer a software-based approach to building performance from suite to portfolio.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
Northshore’s integrated solution unifies knowledge, strategy, and implementation:
Northshore validates building and infrastructure data, transforming it into accurate, organized, and easily consumable information - because good decisions follow good data.
Validated information is then utilized to develop accurate energy models to evaluate the performance of your building and/or portfolio. We identify upgrades and retrofits that lower energy and water consumption, reduce operating costs, and qualify your assets for a suite of financial mechanisms.
Northshore Build is a turn-key general contracting solution that completes new builds, retrofits, and/or retro-commissioning projects to help data center operators implement energy performance improvement upgrades and manage new construction projects.
Core to all our offerings, Northshore analyzes data drawn from disparate sources to provide owners with engineering-minded information critical to making informed decisions.
WHY WORK WITH NORTHSHORE
We foster integrative, long-term relationships with our clients, providing robust energy program roadmaps from initial discovery through project execution. Furthermore, we partner with various stakeholders on our clients’ teams, from owners to operators, to enable ongoing operational efficiency.
The Internet and associated digital devices have accounted for 3.7% of global carbon emissions as of 2018, with the expectation that that percentage will double by 2025, and the global cloud storage market size is projected to grow from USD $50.1 billion in 2020 to USD $137.3 billion by 2025.
Simply put, there is too much carbon in our atmosphere. Sustainability is why we got into this business, and by committing to carbon-neutrality, we are making an important contribution to a sustainable, equitable future.
We calculate carbon emissions associated with our operations and purchase carbon offsets. These calculations include the embodied carbon of all technology purchases that keep us operational, all work-sponsored travel (i.e., flights), and, as a remote company, the emissions associated with each employee's entire utility bill.
