Hannah Rusnac Presents Net Zero Fellowship Research

Carbon Crossroads: An Analysis of Operational and Embodied Carbon in Multifamily Housing

With a goal of 80% carbon emissions reduction by 2050, Oregon will need an estimated 584,000 new homes over the next 20 years to keep up with the projected population growth*. While this pressing need challenges the building industry to provide many homes quickly, it also offers an opportunity to develop strategies for multifamily housing that address net-zero operational carbon goals while aiming for lower embodied carbon footprints.

Hannah Rusnac will be presenting new research funded by the Energy Trust of Oregon Net Zero Fellowship on the results of whole life carbon analysis of eight multifamily buildings in the Pacific Northwest. The research will provide designers and building development teams with embodied and operational carbon assessments of local projects, to identify trends and lessons learned to support net-zero carbon buildings in new multifamily projects. Join us at one of Hannah's upcoming events to gain insight into the research process and results.
