AIA+2030 Online Series Course 8: The Role of Renewable Energy
Explore the relationships between efficiency and renewable energy.
The goal of the 2030 Challenge is to create buildings that use zero fossil fuels. After implementing low/no cost design and efficiency measures in a building project, renewable energy emerges as the final step to reaching aggressive carbon elimination goals. This session will explore the relationships between efficiency and renewable energy, and investigate current renewable energy opportunities both on-site and off-site at neighborhood, district, and utility scales.
- Identify the major on- and off-site renewable energy strategies for buildings
- Propose appropriate renewable energy strategies based on site characteristics and resources
- Enumerate the life cycle costs and benefits of on- and off-site renewable energy
- Understand how to use alternative renewable sources, such as district energy and biofuels, efficiently and in ways that emit low/no GHG emissions.
