 The Neutral Project, LLCNathan Helbach Large Business Building Efficiency The Neutral Project was created to redefine conventional development strategies, to mitigate the reprehensible damage caused by the built environment. Despite the evidence pointing to the built environment’s reality of polluting our ecosystem exponentially for decades, conventional developers continue employing harmful construction methods. To mitigate and cease the perpetual reprehensible damage, we must evolve one of the largest contributing industries – Real Estate Development. Our mission is to leave this cosmos better than when we found it by creating a novel sustainable development company to revitalize our built environment.

Our goal is to create Carbon Neutral buildings, and we are in the process of developing two towers in MAdsino and Milwaukee Wisconsin using Mass timber as our structural system. We believe that our goals align with the FOA: New Program in Carbon Negative Buildings, and would love to be a part of the team.

 NRELJanet Reyna Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Building Efficiency Dr. Reyna is one of the developers of NREL's ResStock model - a high-resolution building stock energy model that simulates nation-wide energy use in residential buildings using physics-based bottom up models. ResStock, in it's main implementation, models use-phase of existing residential building energy use, but in some applications, it has been extended to include forward projections based on stock growth, adding in new construction (LA100 Study - see https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy21osti/79444-3.pdf). The main application of ResStock includes the modeling of building retrofits and upgrades to assess impacts on energy use at different scales (e.g., https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy18osti/68670.pdf)

Dr. Reyna's interest in this call include extending existing ResStock workflows to compare other life-cycle use phases with the use-phase currently included in ResStock. Key questions include the comparative analysis of upgrade materials, particularly high energy / environmental impact materials, against current BAU case to identify any emerging technologies that might have disproportionally high manufacturing impacts compared to anticipated savings. Dr. Reyna is also interested in understanding, from an energy perspective, which buildings should be accelerated for turnover in the stock versus ones that should be retrofitted. All these questions could be answered with an augmented building stock energy model such as ResStock.

Dr. Reyna also has a background in building stock LCA, having previously done work on stock turnover modeling, material flow analysis, and embedded environmental impacts (e.g., https://doi.org/10.1111/jiec.12211)

 State University of New York(SUNY-ESF)Endong Wang Academic Building Efficiency I am currently holding Associate Professor position in Sustainable Construction at State University of New York (SUNY-ESF). I received BS, MS and PhD in Structural Engineering, Management Science, and Construction Engineering, respectively. My research primarily focuses on: 1) Stochastic Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Discounted LCA; 2) Building Retrofitting for Sustainability; and 3) Decision Making via Machine Learning. Since my graduate study in the Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering & Construction at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I have been dedicated to developing robust quantitative instruments and methods for sustainable design and construction. Multiple stochastic data-driven life cycle assessment (LCA) models incorporating uncertainties were constructed for building systems. Particularly, the weighting issue of LCA data quality was addressed to improve its accuracy in embodied energy estimate. A novel stochastic operation energy predicting approach was designed to accurately account for structural deterioration and efficiency conditions. As the main investigator, I developed a hybrid LCA method integrating the process-based, the economic input-output, and the stoichiometric LCA models for Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) process.Temporal homogeneity pertinent to LCA for general process was also investigated. I can make contributions to developing stochastic input-output and process LCA models for materials and processes, quantifying LCA uncertainties, and incorporating tempo-spatial issues in LCA.

 Colorado Earth LLCLisa Morey Small Business Building Efficiency Colorado Earth LLC 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, and have included incorporation of both biological (hemp) and reclaimed building materials waste (gypsum).

A preliminary life cycle analysis has been carried out and would like to see a formal study be carried out on the wall system.

 National Renewable Energy LaboratoryPieter Gagnon Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Grid NREL has recently launched a new data product, Cambium (https://www.nrel.gov/analysis/cambium.html), which contains a suite of metrics describing a range of projected futures of the U.S. electric power grid. Included in the data set are metrics such as the long-run marginal emission rate, which is a forward-looking estimate of the emissions induced (or avoided) by a long-term (>5 years) change in end-use electricity consumption. The metrics are projected at hourly resolution from present day through 2050, covering the contiguous United States with 20 "grid and emission assessment regions".

The data set is planned to be updated and re-released annually.

The data product was built to support other analysis and decision-making tools. Although several of its current metrics are likely already suitable for inclusion into analyses of Carbon Negative Buildings, there is a further opportunity to introduce new metrics into the database that are specifically designed to be incorporated into a LCA framework that includes a forward-looking treatment of a building's electricity consumption.

 Argonne National LaboratoryHao Cai Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Bioenergy Argonne National Laboratory has developed a new building life-cycle analysis (LCA) module in the widely used Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies (GREET®) LCA model (https://greet.es.anl.gov) (hereinafter referred to as the GREET building LCA module), with support of the Building Technologies Office of the US Department of Energy. The GREET building LCA module is a transparent, consistent tool for bottom-up assessment of embodied carbon, energy use, and criteria air pollutant emissions across the supply chain of building materials, building technologies, and whole buildings. The GREET building LCA module empowers technology developers, researchers, manufacturers, building designers and architects, and policy makers to holistically address embodied carbon and sustainability performance of novel and nascent building materials with consistent and extensive background data. With an interactive, streamlined graphical user interface, the GREET building LCA module can enable researchers to conduct detailed, complete LCA of individual building materials and whole buildings. The module is designed to address and compare Cradle-to-Gate supply chains of various building materials and whole building designs in an integrated framework. The module includes dynamic Dashboards to compare detailed LCA results of new building materials and alternative whole building designs relative to incumbent materials and baseline whole building designs. The module and its Dashboards identify and visualize hot spots of LCA impacts at both the material- and the whole building-levels. The standardized whole building framework in the module is fully integrated with building material LCA to address impacts of individual building materials as part of a building, as well as consistent and comparable modeling of different whole building designs. The dynamic whole building LCA framework allows user-defined temporal profiles of building operational energy use and material replacement schedules over a building’s lifetime to quantify and compare temporal and cumulative life-cycle impacts of the use phase of different building materials and whole building designs. The GREET building LCA module is fully integrated with the main fuel cycle GREET model that addresses the production and spatial-explicit land use change impacts of different feedstocks, such as biomass, which could be used to produce building materials.
