Institutions are recognizing their climate leadership role and are committing to decarbonization. Planning for infrastructure, campus, and transportation electrification to meet aggressive carbon targets is challenging and requires holistic solutions. 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. As the urgency to achieve significant carbon reductions grows, we will provide you with the strategies, trends, and technologies to underpin successful plans to achieve target levels at your institution.
Learning Outcome 1: Describe the context and importance of decarbonization at a local and global scale.
Learning Outcome 2: Identify the key parts of putting together a carbon action plan that is measurable, incremental, and collaborative.
Learning Outcome 3: Demonstrate strategies for addressing embodied and operational carbon for new building design, existing buildings operation and maintenance, and energy infrastructure.
Learning Outcome 4: Compare current sustainability certifications, codes, and regulations that can support decarbonization on campus and communities.
