    RC-1 RC-4. High-Performance Buildings Buildings are a major source of demand for energy and materials that produce by-product

    greenhouse gases. It will require immediate and significant action in the building sector

    to slow the growth rate of greenhouse gas emissions in Pennsylvania.

    Recently, Architecture 2030 has issued The 2030 Challenge asking the global

    architecture and building community to adopt the following targets:

    ? All new buildings, developments and major renovations shall be designed to meet a

    fossil fuel, greenhouse gas (GHG)-emitting, energy consumption performance

    standard of 50% of the regional (or country) average for that building type. ? At a minimum, an equal amount of existing building area shall be renovated annually

    to meet a fossil fuel, GHG-emitting, energy consumption performance standard of

    50% of the regional (or country) average for that building type. ? Architecture 2030 established the following fossil fuel reduction standard for all new

    buildings and major renovations:

    60% of buildings in 2010

    70% of buildings in 2015

    80% of buildings in 2020

    90% of buildings in 2025

    100%* of buildings in 2030

    *(using no fossil fuel greenhouse gas emitting energy to operate).

Architecture 2030 envisioned that these targets would be accomplished by implementing

    innovative sustainable design strategies, generating on-site renewable power and/or

    purchasing (20% maximum) renewable energy and/or certified renewable energy credits.

    The main goals for this work plan generally come from the Architecture 2030 Challenge

    building goals, with some revisions from subcommittee. These goals are summarized in

    the following tables. Following the tables are proposed vehicles to meeting these goals. The GHG emission reductions for Pennsylvania through 2020 were estimated assuming

    that these goals are met. The key assumptions and results of that analysis are shown

    below.

The quantification analysis helps provide an overall indication of potential GHG

    emission reductions. However, to better understand the changes to Pennsylvania’s

    building sector equipment and practices, analysis on individual work plans is also needed.

    The other work plans for quantification will help indicate the ability for the state to meet the goals listed here, and will also provide estimates of the costs for meeting these goals.

    1. The Climate Change Advisory Committee recommends the following replacement

    language for RC 1 through 4:

     1

The Committee has recommended exploring the merits of developing High

    Performance Building standards for state and local government, schools, commercial

    (private) and home (residential) buildings.

2. The Committee further recommends convening a stakeholder group for this task

    outside the timeline of Act 70.
