This project aims to expand participation in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment, which asks organizations working in the built environment to make a pledge, develop action plans, and implement steps to construct carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030. To increase participation, this project is developing a tool that makes documentation of this process easier. This effort will, in turn, develop a larger data sampling that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) can use to gain insight into a range of challenging questions, such as the role of performance simulation in energy savings for projects. In addition, this data set can help DOE create comparisons to building projects that have been uploaded to the Building Performance Database.
