 DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)Michael Nowak Government Owned and Operated (GOGO) Other Energy Technologies The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) team at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been a leader in creating frameworks for evaluating the life cycle energy and environmental implications of fuels and energy systems for more than a decade.

NETL uses LCA as a tool and framework for evaluating energy technology and policy options on a common basis. LCA includes the environmental burdens of converting fuel to useful energy, infrastructure construction, extraction and transportation of fuel, and transport of the final energy product to the end user. NETL's LCA method also includes life cycle costing (LCC), which applies cost metrics to the same boundaries as their environmental models. NETL has applied LCA to fossil, nuclear, and renewable energy systems that produce electricity and liquid fuels. The final products of these LCAs include detailed DOE project reports, published journal paper, as well as dynamic software tools, which can be seen at our website: https://netl.doe.gov/LCA
Examples of past energy system LCAs done by NETL include biomass, coal, geothermal, natural gas, liquefied natural gas, nuclear, petroleum, solar, and wind. We have also done LCAs of CO2 utilization.
We have created publicly available unit process libraries and models that are useful for application in building efficiency analyses.

 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.
For the upcoming FOA, we propose and plan to: (1) develop a computational dynamic LCA framework for evaluating operational and embodied carbon along with carbon sequestration by utilizing atmospheric carbon to create net carbon negative building materials and building typologies; (2) integrate the framework in existing design and construction tools for a spatiotemporal carbon modeling; (3) test the framework with real-world cases in current and future climate change scenarios; and (4) deliver the tools and new knowledge to key decisionmakers to help transform buildings into carbon sinks.

 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.
