2030 Series: Introduction to the 2030

12PM-1PM | $5-35


This event is an introduction to the 2030 Commitment, a national initiative from the AIA that provides a framework to help firms evaluate the impact of project design on energy performance. The Commitment builds on the 2030 Challenge, which calls for all new buildings, developments, and major renovations to become carbon-neutral by the year 2030.

Three representatives from firms of different scales will present their lessons learned from several rounds of reporting 2030 data. For those who are considering signing the Commitment or are in their first cycles of reporting, this session will offer suggestions for jumping in the deep end: defining and calculating EUI and LPD, collecting project information, influencing design, and taking advantage of data from the national database.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the impact of the building industry’s energy use and carbon footprint on climate change
  • Become familiar with the 2030 Commitment’s definitions and calculations of EUI and LPD, and their value for expressing building energy consumption
  • Make connections between supplying firm data and applications of aggregate data
  • Gain technical skills for collecting data and using 2030 online reporting platform DDx
