Animal Shelters provide unique challenges for energy efficiency, primarily due to the high ventilation rates required to keep animals and staff healthy and happy.  The Newark Animal Adoption Center utilizes innovative strategies including heat recovery, natural ventilation, radiant heating, and advanced lighting and controls to optimize energy efficiency while providing new functional, modern and low impact medical and shelter, and adoption facilities for homeless companion animals in the Newark area.
