A Pathway to Net Zero
Engineering Principles that Support AGU’s Energy Goals
Mar 12, 2017
At the beginning of this landmark headquarters project, the American Geophysical Union introduced an ambitious objective for the renovated building: to meet a net zero energy goal—an unprecedented sustainability goal for an urban office retrofit typically reserved for new construction. To achieve this distinction, the project employs a combination of four engineering principles to conserve and generate enough power to meet the building’s demands: reduction, reclamation, absorption, and generation.
