Portland Buildings of Tomorrow: Decarbonizing the Built Environment
September 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The built environment generates 40% of our total carbon emissions. It is at the center of multiple major emission sources, including building materials, building energy, and transportation. We will be discussing post build solutions to lower carbon emissions in residential and commercial buildings to help fight climate change.
We will be joined by panelists who are innovating in different aspects of the sector to build for a sustainable future:
- Tanya Barham – CEO at Community Energy Lab: Operating system for grid-harmonized 24/7 zero carbon schools & communities
- Wendy Koelfgen – Clean Energy Project Manager at Portland Clean Energy Fund: A $750m initiative to invest in clean energy and sustainability over the next 5 years
- Sarah Nuamah – Board member of Passive House NW & Agent at Small Planet Supply: PNW-based company building high performance energy-efficient buildings
- Katherine Redaka – Rapid Learning Institute & Host of Accelerate Net Zero Podcast: And international consultancy helping various companies accelerate net zero initiatives
The event will be moderated by Simon Foucher, lead Portland organizer at PNW Climate Week.
