Utilizing four case studies, this course explores how to create a new blueprint for energy decarbonization that aligns with the changing electric grid. An overview of energy infrastructure changes that are taking place in the state of California will be provided alongside how these changes impact the types of building systems being considered for a multi-family building, a school, a healthcare project, and an office building. The course will explore the carbon impacts of each case study, both today and in the future as the electric grid continues to decarbonize utilizing expected average carbon emissions for 2030 and 2050.
