Renewable Cities Need Renewable Buildings

May 18, 2017
10:00  -  11:00 at the Oak Room

Renewable cities should consider embodied energy in their renewable energy accounting. And this means making links between building materials and renewable energy goals. Much of the global building stock comprises embedded fossil fuel-derived energy and materials. This session will provide an introduction to emerging policy, such as requirements for whole building embodied carbon life cycle analysis, as well as programs such as the 8-country EU pilot project Buildings as a Materials Bank, and standards driving the development of biobased building products.

Participants in this session are eligible to receive 1 Core AIBC Learning Unit (LU).
