Energy and Material Efficiency in Carbon Smart Buildings
November 27 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) is hosting a free Regional Forum to discuss the implications of carbon neutrality goals for the built environment, energy efficiency goals, and local building codes. This forum will examine the definition of “Zero Net Carbon” (ZNC) as well as how local governments can set policies to achieve a ZNC built environment. The forum will introduce to the concept of life cycle carbon emissions from both operational and embodied energy usage, the importance of addressing materials in order to achieve emission reductions, and local government policy tools. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in breakout sessions on ZNC and Climate Action Plans, municipal facilities, and private development. Networking breakfast begins at 8:30 with the event starting at 9:00. Please click here to register. The session is also available for participation via webinar if you are unable to attend in person.
