SB2030 is a progressive energy conservation program designed to significantly reduce the energy and carbon in Minnesota commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings. It is required for any state bonded buildings. Using target EUI’s, the designer has the freedom to use multiple options to decrease energy use within the building. Patrick Smith from the Center of Sustainable Research will provide an outline for the SB2030 program, provide the tools used, and walk through the process.
