About the Event:

Washington has an extremely aggressive Clean Energy Transformation Act that calls for the state to:
  • 2025: Eliminate coal
  • 2030: Greenhouse gas neutral standard
    • At least 80 percent of electricity delivered must be renewable or non-emitting
    • Alternative compliance options for up to 20 percent
  • 2045: 100 percent renewable or non-emitting retail electricity supply
How will these objectives impact our buildings and capital projects going forward? What are the cutting-edge technologies and design principles that we should be thinking about? The Team from PAE will talk about some studies and projects that they are currently working on.
