Achieving net zero energy and carbon in extreme laboratory environments, and the strategies to guide the process, are a challenge for all research facility stakeholders. Session leaders call upon multiple case studies of intense laboratory environments including dry rooms, engineering testing, BSL3, and chemistry labs to demonstrate a process of evaluation, options analysis, and cost analysis for a path toward net zero energy and carbon. They reveal new tools that provide the data and guidance to meet the laboratory requirements, energy efficiencies, and design objectives. They identify the latest technologies in mechanical systems and the contribution they make in achieving energy goals.
