Balancing Act: What does “all-electric” mean for your research buildings and programs?

How can institutions electrify their buildings to achieve their decarbonization goals, even in challenging climates? Session leaders present an array of solutions that align climate, loads, science programs, and operations to deliver all-electric buildings. They illustrate the optimal sizing of equipment and infrastructure for both mechanical and electrical systems, distill what commercial developers of labs and research buildings have learned, and chart the effects on operational carbon, embodied carbon, space planning, cost, and resiliency. They identify key questions to ask, and when, in the pursuit of all-electric and zero carbon goals.
