The 2030 Challenge: The Power of Targets and Load Reduction

Thursday February 20, 2020

Noon to 1:30 pm

The building sector is the single largest consumer of energy and producer of greenhouse gas emissions. The 2030 Challenge, adopted by the AIA, provides a path to reducing our sector’s negative impacts and reaching carbon neutral design as the standard practice. This series will inspire architects to meet the 2030 Challenge through design strategies, efficient technologies and systems, and applying renewable energy resources.

The 2030 Challenge outlines a set of incremental design targets moving towards carbon neutral design. Those targets should be part of the design process from the start of the project. This course examines tools that can help set a project’s energy targets and track progress towards those goals. Attendees will also learn about setting targets, not just for the whole building energy use, but for energy end uses of the building, which is critical to achieving results. Finally, members explore how energy modeling can be used at all stages of design to verify progress towards realizing the project’s goals.   

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain the incremental design targets outlined in the 2030 Challenge that move towards carbon neutral design

  • Describe some of the primary tools available to assist architects in setting and tracking energy targets

  • Discuss the importance of energy end use in setting targets and achieving results

  • Describe how energy modeling can be used at all stages of design to verify progress towards realizing the project’s goals

The 2030 Challenge: Goals and Design Processes

Thursday January 16, 2020

Noon to 1:15 pm

The building sector is the single largest consumer of energy and producer of greenhouse gas emissions.

 

The 2030 Challenge, adopted by the AIA, provides a path to reducing our sector’s negative impacts and reaching carbon neutral design as the standard practice. This series will inspire architects to meet the 2030 Challenge through design strategies, efficient technologies and systems, and applying renewable energy resources.

The design process is an important element in the creation of next-generation buildings that meet the 2030 Challenge targets. In the first course of the AIA+2030 Online Series, we will explore the design processes to produce high-performance and carbon neutral buildings, including the Integrative Design Process (IDP). We will explore collaborative strategies that can achieve low energy outcomes, and how these strategies can be used as a roadmap throughout the design process. In particular, we will examine defining core, early design decisions such as building form and orientation.
