 Arizona State UniversityDavid Sailor Academic Building Efficiency Dr. David Sailor is a Professor and Director of the Urban Climate Research Center at Arizona State University. Prior to joining ASU in 2016, he was founding Director of the Green Building Research Laboratory at Portland State University working with industry, entrepreneurs, and other researchers to investigate the energy and environmental benefits of green building technologies and strategies. Dr. Sailor has developed and taught courses in the Fundamentals of Building Science and in Building Energy Modeling with software tools including eQuest and EnergyPlus. He served as a developer for EnergyPlus and is responsible for the green roof (ecoroof) module that has been part of the standard release of EnergyPlus since 2007. His research group actively publishes modeling studies (9 in past 2.5 years) in leading peer-reviewed journals. These studies focus on energy efficiency of buildings, building passive survivability, and the role of innovations in materials (Phase Change Materials, Passive Daytime Radiative Cooling materials, etc) to make buildings more energy efficient and more thermally resilient. A unique capability of the Sailor research group is their familiarity with and ability to modify and recompile source code from EnergyPlus, enabling a much wider range of research investigations. The team routinely models buildings under current climate and future climate scenarios, and is well-positioned to contribute to LCA of innovations in building materials and whole building designs. Also, as Director of the Urban Climate Research Center, Dr. Sailor can bring on board the expertise of over 36 faculty affiliates who work in various aspects of social, economic, and energy implications of sustainable infrastructure.

 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.

 Yale UniversityYuan Yao Academic Bioenergy Prof. Yuan Yao is an Assistant Professor of Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Systems at Yale University. Dr. Yao received her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Northwestern University. She has expertise in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Techno-Economic Analysis, carbon footprint accounting, data analytics, and systems modeling. Her current research focuses on carbon emissions and LCA modeling of biomass-based products and new materials. Prof. Yao has been leading over $10 million research grants focusing on dynamic LCA coupled with geo-temporal modeling to understand the environmental impacts of materials derived from diverse feedstocks and processing methods over different time and spatial scales. Her team developed the first dynamic LCA framework that integrates temporal changes of forest growth and GHG emissions into the product-level LCA for wood-based building materials. Her LCA frameworks can quantify the impacts of different feedstocks (e.g., purpose-grown trees versus forest residues) and process operations (e.g., different energy supply, waste treatment, and manufacturing techniques). Prof. Yao also has a decade of research record on leveraging cutting-edge modeling techniques such as machine learning and process simulation for rapid screening and data generation for LCA of new materials. Her work has supported many projects for understanding potential environmental benefits/risks of new materials under development compared to incumbent materials. She has publications in top journals in sustainability and environmental science areas such as Nature Sustainability, Environmental Research Letters, and Environmental Science and Technology. Given her expertise on LCA and biomass, she served on the United Nations’ Technical Advisory Group for LEAP Partnership in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Her research on spatial-temporal modeling for bio-based materials received the U.S. National Science Foundation Faculty Early CAREER Award. Prof. Yao’s research group is in the Center for Industrial Ecology (CIE) at Yale. LCA belongs to industrial ecology, and CIE at Yale is the first and world-known research center for industrial ecology research. Leveraging CIE’s global impact, Yao’s group brings together Yale faculty and top students, research scholars in the world to develop new knowledge and practical applications for LCA.
