    The decarbonization challenges of existing buildings is noted in the CaGBC report on deep retrofits of large buildings. The CIB interest rate on the funds are lower for deep retrofits when the projects have greater reductions of GHGs even if they cost more in initial costs. The federal government suggests using a 40-year lifecycle cost fossil fuel savings should reflect the rising price of carbon up to $300/ton. This presentation will review studies on interior and exterior energy savings options for windows while discussing the recladding of buildings and interior insulation options. The speakers will address how to model retrofit options and choose the right size new electric HVAC equipment to meet the changed loads. Join this session to learn new insights and solutions for the decarbonization of existing buildings.
