Aggressive goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change has pushed codes to increase efficiency requirements and restrict emissions. Electric buildings are part of this solution because the electric grid becomes cleaner as we employ zero emission technologies paired with renewables, like wind and solar. They can be much simpler to operate and are often cleaner, safer and more comfortable. This session will explore consideration for systems, materials and finishes with low-embodied and zero-operational carbon. From mid-rise, multifamily to zero-energy single-family, the examples presented will share lessons learned and demonstrate simple, practical and economical applications.
