Cincinnati, OH

0.2 CEU

This training session will discuss unique challenges in planning the processes and projects needed to achieve the decarbonization goals directed by Executive Order (E.O.) 14057. We’ll explore transitioning existing Federal infrastructure to zero-emission buildings and net-zero campuses through deep retrofits to implement energy efficiency improvements, on-site renewable generation, building and transportation electrification, managing electricity loads, and smart infrastructure choices for the future development and management of federal portfolios, campuses, and military installations. We will emphasize elements of success in creating decarbonization roadmaps at Federal and other campuses to plan significant reduction in carbon emissions.
