Achieving a Carbon Neutral Campus Infrastructure
In order to achieve their ambitious goal of decarbonization by 2035, Swarthmore College carried out the design and planned implementation of new campus energy systems. Learn how to apply their valuable strategies to create a sustainable decarbonized environment for your campus community.
Decarbonizing Your Campus
This session will discuss transitioning away from fossil fuels for campus heating and transportation and explore new technical, procurement, and phasing strategies to cost-effectively achieve carbon reduction and resiliency goals.
Drilling Through the Carbon Barrier
As a model for other institutions, we'll contextualize and detail two of the largest and deepest ground-source heat pump-chiller systems used to unlock campus-wide carbon neutrality—at Boston University and Ball State University.
Energy Master Planning to Reduce Carbon Emissions
This session will provide you with tools to engage in meaningful campus discussion about implementing a transition away from fossil fuels for heating and cooling and achieving net zero carbon emissions.
Managing Your Historic Campus Facilities in Today’s Resource-Constrained Environment
How are you addressing your campus’ historic facilities with so many competing needs for limited resources? This webinar will outline strategies for the management of historic properties on college and university campuses, with guidelines, standards, and best practices to address a wide range of concerns dealing with historic facilities.
Passive House Design and Residence Halls
The session will discuss the basics of Passive House (PH) design, how it can both save energy and improve the quality of the interior environment. The presenters will illustrate how Passive House design has been incorporated from both a design and administrative standpoint at the new residence hall at the University of Toronto Scarborough.
Setting Building Energy Standards
Individual cities, states, and utility incentive programs are going beyond carbon neutral standards to embrace energy consumption limits—this session will present these new strategies as models and options for campus building energy standards.
Sustainability and Resiliency
This session will discuss Rider University's energy master plan, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through integrating facility management and future campus development as well as incorporating energy conservation and generation options.
Transforming CSU Monterey Bay With the Living Community Challenge
California State University-Monterey Bay (CSU-MB) is the first university campus to register for the Living Community Challenge, becoming a model for how university campus design and planning can have a profound impact beyond the campus. We will discuss how our 2018 Architecture at Zero award-winning wellness and recreation design solution is transforming CSU-MB into a healthy, sustainable, net-positive environment.
Universities on Fire
This session explores the impact of climate change on higher education and how academia may respond.
