This presentation includes a panel discussion on the efforts of two local firms, Lord Aeck Sargent and Cooper Carry, in their commitment to the 2030 Challenge. Attendees will learn details of the Challenge, including strategies adopted by the firms, opportunities, challenges, resource commitment and more.
The 2030 Challenge was introduced to the design community in 2006 with a goal for all new buildings, developments and major renovations to be carbon neutral by 2030. The Challenge is set in stages of reduction in fossil fuel energy consumption.
The present target is 70 percent of the average consumption for that building type, which will increase to 80 percent in 2020; 90 percent in 2025; and finally achieve fossil fuel energy consumption neutrality in 2030. The AIA 2030 Commitment is a reporting framework for the 2030 Challenge. Several Atlanta firms have voluntarily signed up for the Challenge and the Commitment.
Attendees will learn:
- Details of the 2030 Challenge and the state of the industry with respect to the Challenge
- Design strategies and techniques adopted by firms in fossil fuel reduction in projects
- Challenges and opportunities firms face in fossil fuel reduction
- How reporting for the Challenge is done and details on the tools utilized
- The future of renewable energy and beyond 2030 with newly launched ZeroTool
