Jack Rusk is the Climate Strategist at EHDD, an architecture firm with offices in San Francisco and Seattle. He is the lead developer of the Early Phase Integrated Carbon (EPIC) assessment, a data-driven planning tool for climate positive buildings. EPIC has been used to plan the total decarbonization of the AIA National Headquarters renovation, as well as to demonstrate carbon emissions reduction from the grid-interactive Sonoma Clean Power Headquarters. To catalyze decarbonization across the building sector, EPIC is now freely available as a web application. Jack, in addition to his work at EHDD, has recently published research in both architectural journals and the peer-reviewed scientific literature on topics including restoration ecology, urban hazard risk, and socially equitable decarbonization.

Role of Smart Buildings in Reducing Carbon Emissions
This session will feature two case studies of C/I buildings that deploy smart tech/practices resulting in demonstrated carbon emission reductions. Additional SMEs will join in a moderated discussion of carbon reduction and the role smart technology can play.
