Decarb Buy-in: Creating a Culture of Decarbonization

Decarbonization requires thinking big and working together. Universities are uniquely positioned to model innovative planning approaches to decarbonization, revealing what’s possible at different scales, from individuals to broader organizations.
Abstract: Decarbonization sits at the nexus of integrated planning. Gain buy-in by engaging students, faculty, staff, industry partners, and the broader community across all campus facets to create a culture of decarbonization that yields tangible outcomes. Decarbonization requires thinking big and working together. Universities are uniquely positioned to model innovative planning approaches to decarbonization, revealing what’s possible at different scales, from individuals to broader organizations. Attendees will gain tools for implementing decarbonization plans aligned with institutional missions. Develop strategies to build consensus, align on priorities, think big, and create a culture of decarbonization defined by new models of practice.

Zero-energy Buildings on a Shoe-string Budget

Come learn how you can reduce operating costs and bring a zero-energy building to your campus, resulting in a lower carbon footprint and greater health and wellbeing for students.
Abstract: Deans, professors, and students all seek high-performance, zero-energy buildings because of their value in elevating recruitment, learning, and living outcomes on campus. Zero-energy buildings are now a reality on today’s shoe-string budgets. To become an advocate for high-performance, zero-energy design and construction, it’s important to understand the initial steps in implementing these projects. Come learn how you can reduce operating costs and bring a zero-energy building to your campus, resulting in a lower carbon footprint and greater health and wellbeing for students.

Planning Early for Zero Net Energy

This session outlines a process for leveraging energy modeling early to gauge and clarify zero net energy (ZNE) feasibility and articulating the value proposition of high-performance design leadership. Come learn how to set meaningful energy targets, identify crucial design decisions, and demonstrate to stakeholders that setting ZNE goals is vital during procurement.
Abstract: Zero net energy (ZNE) is a formidable goal and one that is not easily grafted onto a project once the design is in progress. We will explain why it is necessary to evaluate ZNE opportunities before the request for proposal. This session outlines a process for leveraging energy modeling early to gauge and clarify ZNE feasibility and articulating the value proposition of high-performance design leadership. Come learn how to set meaningful energy targets, identify crucial design decisions, and demonstrate to stakeholders that setting ZNE goals is vital during procurement.

Campus Energy Master Planning

A Road Map to Carbon-Neutral Institutions in Northern U.S. Latitudes

Higher education institutions can lead the way in reducing energy consumption and advancing carbon neutrality by starting with their on-campus facilities.

From Volume 45 Number 3 | April–June 2017

Abstract: The imperative for higher education institutions to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions is driven by the energy required to sustain their campus facilities and by rapid, irreversible changes to the climate that threaten global infrastructures. This article provides a framework that comprehensively addresses campus facilities’ energy consumption reduction and conversion to renewable resources while helping building users become more aware of how their actions impact greenhouse gas emissions. Case studies illustrate how two different institutions developed campus energy master plans and set incremental goals toward carbon neutrality and net-zero fossil fuel energy consumption.
