Demonstrate Your Building’s Performance with the ILFI Reveal Label

The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) has collaborated with Architecture 2030 to update their Reveal label – an easy-to-understand method of displaying the energy performance of a building.

Reveal is designed for owners, managers, architects, 2030 Challenge adopters, and AIA 2030 Commitment signatories who want the validation and confirmation of third-party verification for their building’s energy performance.

The Reveal label displays a building’s:

  • Energy use intensity
  • Zero Energy Performance Index (ZEPI) score
  • Reduction in energy use from the 2030 Challenge baseline
  • Onsite and offsite renewable energy generation (if applicable)

The Reveal label provides a clear, third-party verified program for validating reaching the 2030 Challenge targets or achieving a Zero Net Carbon building.

Reveal – Using the Architecture 2030 Zero Tool

2030 Commitment signatories and 2030 Challenge adopters can use Architecture 2030’s new Zero Tool to generate post-occupancy building data and submit that data to the Reveal program for third-party verification that a project meets the Challenge targets.

2030 District members can also demonstrate that their buildings meet the 2030 Challenge targets through the Zero Tool, and have their building’s performance third-party verified by submitting data from the Zero Tool to the Reveal program.

The Zero Tool Is Here!

Architecture 2030 introduces the Zero Tool, a free innovative online application that allows architects, designers, engineers, building owners and managers, and policymakers to calculate building energy consumption baselines and targets.

Support Architecture 2030!

Throughout 2017, three intrepid members of the Architecture 2030 staff will train for and undertake 40-mile hiking and 200-mile biking fundraising events. Donating to these adventures is the first time individuals have had the chance to support the work of Architecture 2030 directly.

To highlight the local impacts of climate change on sensitive ecosystems while raising money for Architecture 2030, Erin McDade and Lindsay Rasmussen will be taking part in a four-day hike in the Glacier National Park in Montana, while Andrew Lee will be undertaking a four-day bike ride around the Puget Sound.

 

Erin and Lindsay will be hiking more than 40 miles in the stunning Glacier National Park in Montana.

“While hiking, we’ll see first-hand the impacts of climate change on Glacier National Park,” said Research Intern Lindsay. “Tying particular places to the global work we do is one of the great opportunities of this hike.”

The ride and hike are organized by our friends at Climate Ride, a non-profit organization that puts on multi-day expeditions to raise funds for climate change focused organizations.

“I’m so passionate about the work that we do at Architecture 2030 that I can’t wait for this opportunity to get outside and raise awareness and support for our efforts,” said Program Manager Erin.

Up to now, most of Architecture 2030’s work supporting climate change action in the building sector has been funded by foundation grants or contributions from architecture firms. For the first time, individuals have the opportunity to support Architecture 2030’s programs and initiatives by sponsoring our dedicated team.

 

Andrew will be riding 200 miles around the Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest.

“Putting in the training to ride 50 miles a day throughout the event will be tough,’ said Project Manager Andrew, “But knowing that every mile I ride will generate donations to support our work will keep me going.”

We’ll be bringing you more information about their training and preparation before they embark on their trips, and checking in with them once they return from their adventures.

To support Erin, Lindsay, and Andrew (and the work of Architecture 2030) you can donate to their Climate Ride team page today!
