A Door County award-winning architect that specializes in environmentally responsible and energy-efficient design is promoting the need for more training in the area. Virge Temme, a leader in Green design and LEED-certified projects in Northeastern Wisconsin, says the focus should be to eliminate the dependence on coal and other fossil fuels.
Buildings contribute over 40 percent of the carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and of that, 60 percent are homes. Temme recommends to her clients, architects, and builders to take the necessary training on how to design and build super energy-efficient homes. Online training is possible while it can also be completed within five business days in-person.
