September 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree – $20.00
Topic: The ASHRAE Building Decarbonization Strategy Game
Test your knowledge of building decarbonization strategy through participation in this interactive program. The audience competes to see who can match common building decarbonization planning practices and improvement measures with the appropriate definitions and rank them in order of highest relative importance. The building decarbonization measures and practices cover a range of topics including project planning and delivery; building systems and equipment; building operations; and renewable energy. The session ends with a discussion of priorities for addressing building industry education and training gaps.
