Session 3: CSU Dominguez Hills, A Practical Journey Toward Zero Net Carbon
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 5, 2023, 9:50 AM - 10:50 AM


Net zero carbon may sound overwhelming to busy facility managers. How do you even begin? Learn how California State University Dominguez Hills embraces the journey – and achieves impressive results – by focusing on the basics of building management.  By tackling retro-commissioning, creating pilot renewable projects, and creating an energetic learning mindset for ongoing energy improvements, campus staff have reduced electric consumption to lower than 2019 levels while adding 300,000 sq ft and converting plant from direct gas fired absorption chillers to all electric chillers. Greenhouse gases have also been reduced by 50% since 2019. And they’re just getting started. The manager in charge will share how you can take practical steps right now to reduce energy waste and create a roadmap for the next decade and beyond.
