The World’s Most Energy Efficient Block
Winner of New York State
Governor’s Award for Energy Excellence
creates a “building within a building”.
The “building within a building” creates interior walls with high insulated thermal mass, which absorb and store large amounts of energy.
This increased heat capacity of
the walls, along with the R-22 value of the block , delivers
unparalleled HVAC energy efficiency.
Time required for a material to reach a new constant rate of heat gain or loss.
NRG Wall: 50 Hours
Standard Block Wall 12 Hours
Conventional Insulated Stud Wall
* Limits the rate of temperature fluctuation.
* Reduces peak loading time for heating and cooling.
* Allows for installation of smaller capacity HVAC
equipment, resulting in immediate savings.

Lower Construction Costs
NRGblock eliminates secondary
Walls and insulation are complete when the mason is done, providing substantial labor savings.
NRG block is made in standard dimensions with any architectural finish so it can be interspersed with conventional CMU for ease of construction.
hydro-fluorides during manufacturing.
Don Reed’s 6800 square foot market, Genesee, PA. Erected 1994, using NRG insulated block.
Reduced capacity HVAC systems provide substantial material savings.
NRG insulated block provides quiet building interiors, even in high traffic locations.
Standard block used to wrap steel safety columns look identical to NRG block.
Frank Kennedy and Don Reed are pleased with building’s performance after 15 years.
$400 / month x 12 months x 15 years = $72,000
No air conditioner needed, saved another $10k.
Total savings of $82,000, plus NRG Insulated Block produced a secure, quiet, fireproof, maintenance free building.
Energy and material savings = $82,000
$ 82,000 divided by 5500 sq ft of wall = $14.90/ sq ft of wall
Initial installed cost less than $15 / sq ft of wall in1994.
After 15 years, total cost of wall is recovered.
NRG Insulated Block can save National Chain $ 51.4 million dollars in ten years.
Steel stud and brick veneer with insulation, $ 26. / sq ft of wall.
NRG Insulated Block , $ 20. / sq ft of wall.
9500 sq ft of wall x $6.00 savings /sq ft = $57,000 savings / store.
60 stores x $ 57k / store = $3.042 million/year
10 year construction savings $30.42 million.
HVAC system savings- uses systems that require about one third the output as same-sized stores, provides additional savings.
NRG estimates that our block will save National Chain
$.53 / sq ft HVAC energy, or $6,360 / store annually,
per 12,000 sq ft store.
National Chain builds 60 stores/ year.
60 stores x $6,360 / store = $381,600 /year energy savings.
Total HVAC energy savings after 5 years = $5.724 million.
Total HVAC energy savings after 10 years = $20.988 million.
10 year Construction Cost Savings: $30.42 million
10 year HVAC Energy Cost Savings: $20.988 million
Lighter Duty HVAC Equipment Savings:
(Yet to be determined.)
Total Energy / Construction Savings: $ 51.408 million
Over 70 building owners have made the NRG choice.
