 Texas A&M UniversityManish Dixit Academic Building Efficiency Our research focuses on assessing and optimizing embodied and operational impacts of buildings using a cradle-to-cradle approach. Our focus has been on developing dynamic LCA frameworks that allow not just quantifying and optimizing life cycle energy use and carbon emissions but also analyzing interdependencies of different embodied and operational impact components to facilitate net carbon negative design solutions. We are also creating life cycle carbon accounting frameworks for current as well as future climate change scenarios to assess if a net carbon negative building design remains carbon negative in future scenarios. These frameworks are currently being integrated into design and construction tools such as Autodesk Revit and Rhinoceros. Our group has also been developing multi-objective optimization (MOO) and machine learning algorithms to predict operational and embodied energy and carbon performance of buildings based on limited information. Another area of research we are targeting is the large-scale 3D printing or robotic construction of buildings using renewable materials with high sequestered carbon content.
For the upcoming FOA, we propose and plan to explore: (1) developing a renewable material for constructing buildings to sequester atmospheric carbon; (2) analyzing and reaching the net carbon negative status using a computational dynamic LCA framework; (3) constructing prototypes for building elements and an entire residential structure to validate net carbon negative status; and (4) verifying through rigorous modeling if the prototype remain carbon negative in future climate change scenarios.

 Community Energy LabsTanya A Barham Small Business Building Efficiency At Community Energy Labs we are bringing to market the first truly scalable grid-interactive AI-powered clean building control system - key to 24/7 net-zero carbon buildings. Our mission is to affordably enable communities’ building decarbonization goals by 2030. CEL's core AI-powered clean building control platform was a regional winner of CleanTech Open's 2020 international accelerator, an overall winner in the 2020 Madrona Venture Labs Go Vertical challenge, a 2021 impel+ building innovator, EPRI Incubate Energy 2021 cohort member and 2021 US Department of Energy SBIR awardee.

Our Technology Serves People
Washington - stringent commercial building standards (HB 1257) recently became law. Cities like Seattle and all over California are banning gas in municipal buildings. Without better pricing and Grid-Interactive Efficient Building (GEB) approaches, building energy use and misaligned peaks could increase which is why the California Energy Commission (CEC) is also planning to launch dynamic electric rates by 2024. We aim to field harden and advance GEB solutions for building owners who struggle to affordably address these increasingly complex commercial energy prices and grid constraints.

CEL provides an IoT & Software as a Service control platform for building operators who find it complex, frustrating and very expensive to meet new building energy goals and prices. We install wireless sensors, equipment controllers, and use cloud-based software powered by machine learning to autonomously predict and efficiently control how and when new existing building equipment is operating so that more of it is powered by clean or affordable energy. In doing so we offer building owners higher levels of energy savings, lower carbon and up-front cost, and faster returns than competitors.

Our goals: (1) Focus on underserved building types and customers representing a scalable segment of the market; (2) Implement technical approaches to widespread load flexibility; (3) Deploy service models that incorporate customer priorities, constraints, and feedback.

Our objectives: (1) Deliver customer energy savings (5-25%) (2) Reduce peak demand (20-40%); (3) Improve occupant comfort, air quality (CO2) and load shape alignment to renewable availability compared to a measured baseline; (4) Deploy technologies and business models that are affordable, replicable, can stimulate job growth, and that can be deployed at scale in existing buildings.

 Colorado Earth LLCLisa Morey Small Business Building Efficiency Colorado Earth, Inc. (CO Earth) is presently commercializing low embodied carbon compressed earth blocks (CEBs) for building construction. Compressed earth blocks (CEBs) are one of the most widespread earthen building materials and are inherently applicable in a global market enabling adoption, but also creation of manufacturing jobs across diverse and varied markets. CEBs are a modern descendent of the molded adobe block. The compaction of earth improves the quality and performance of the blocks but also promotes several environmental, social, and economic benefits. CEBs are non-fired and are rather air-dried to achieve their strength. The use of earthen building elements could result in reducing the potential environmental impacts by about 50% when compared to the use of conventional building elements.

CEBs also provide a versatile platform to explore the incorporation of a wide variety of materials in an already environmentally friendly and low-carbon manufacturing product to enhance performance. Early demonstrations of CEB manufacturing have been initiated at CO Earth’s facility in Golden, CO, shown in Figure 1 and have included incorporation of both biological (hemp) and reclaimed building materials waste (gypsum).

 National Renewable Energy LaboratoryTao Dong Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Bioenergy I am a staff engineer working in Renewable Resources and Enabling Sciences Center at NREL. My research primarily focuses on developing novel processes to convert microalgal biomass into biofuel and value-added co-products (polymer, surfactant, etc). Recently we have developed a process to produce fully renewable non-isocyanate polyurethane (NIPU) for different applications. Because the NIPU synthesis incorporates CO2, this technology also provides an opportunity to capture carbon from other high-CO2 emission applications, such as power plants. As much as 30% of the polymer weight can come from the captured CO2. The polymer foams and coatings can be 100% bio-based and free of isocyanates, offering significant sustainability advantages over current commercial products.
At NREL, we have a fully equipped polymer lab with regular synthesis and characterization tools. We have the capability to produce monomers at 5kg scale for industry evaluation. We can also performance techno-economic analysis and lifecycle assessment.
We are interested to team up with industrial and academic partners to develop bio-based polymers for building applications.

 National Renewable Energy LaboratoryVivek Bharadwaj Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Bioenergy I am a staff scientist in the Renewable Resources and Enabling Sciences Center at NREL. A chemical engineer by training, my research expertise lies in applying and developing multi-scale modeling approaches for biological and chemical systems that combine quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics techniques at the atomistic length-scales with finite element methods at the meso- and macro-length scales. I am interested in teaming up with experimental and industrial collaborators to provide modeling expertise that could involve: using QM or MD simulations for (i) estimating materials properties (ii) catalytic mechanism discovery (iii) estimating transport properties (eg: diffusivities, conductivities) or using Finite Element Methods for (i) simulating reaction coupled multi-physics problems (ii) mechanical deformation simulations etc.
