Greenbuild 2021 – Net Zero Embodied Carbon Structures – SE 2050 Commitment


This session explains the newly launched Structural Engineers (SE) 2050 Commitment Program by the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). SE 2050 is a national program with goals of reducing the embodied carbon of our structural systems to net zero by 2050 through education, tracking of embodied carbon, and establishing reduction targets over time. …


Modeling Lifetime Carbon: Operations + Embodied + Transportation – Greenbuild 2020 Session Review


Editorial, “This presentation gave us some insight into how to describe and quantify embodied carbon, especially for transportation. It’s frighting what is predicted to happen by 2050. Location, location, location is so important but the doubling of population by 2050 compounds the problem. None of the 2020 Greenbuild presentations addressed the population boom. This unspoken reality seems to ignore population …


Navigating the Zero Energy and Carbon Landscape – Greenbuild 2020 Session Review


Editorial, “With all this talk about zero-carbon and its comprehensive effect on everything about building conception, construction, operation, maintenance and deconstruction; we wondered about what this is going to look like when we apply the same science to housewares, consumables, food, transportation and clothing. Inexpensive appliances from China will be frowned upon. Understanding the amount of micro plastics in paper …

ChuckLohreArchives, Greenbuild

Editorial, “This presentation confirms our three step strategy to understand our project’s needs and timeline. We’re volunteering to help the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in downtown Cincinnati to achieve LEED Certification. First we implemented the U.S. Green Building Council’s ARC building carbon footprint measuring system. Second we are assembling the complete energy history of the building from its construction in …


It’s Electric! The Next Wave of Building Decarbonization – Greenbuild 2020 Session Review


Editorial, “We didn’t know that fossil gas releases so much methane into the atmosphere during drilling, during extraction, during transmission, and during burning to offset any benefits over coal. Heat pumps and induction cooktops are much more efficient and use electricity. 100 percent electric buildings are here and we won’t have to pay for replacing the aging fossil gas distribution …


The Missing Pieces: The Next Frontier of Zero Carbon


Editorial comment, “We love hearing about carbon! It is so inclusive and brings every aspect of our world into focus. No longer can suppliers say, not applicable, not our problem, doesn’t apply. Steel from China isn’t the same as steel from the mill 50 miles from us. Concrete has always bothered us and now we have a rational way of …


Machine Learning for City-scale Decarbonization Planning – Greenbuild 2020 Session Review

ChuckLohreArchives, Greenbuild

Editorial, ” This session reviews the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Cities program globally. Cincinnati received its LEED Certification in November 2019. The second speaker presented his PhD work analyzing efficiency models holistically and not individually. This allows a city to understand where investment will have the most impact. We are donating our time attending Greenbuild to help the Contemporary …
