Green Building Conference 2004
The Bren School of Environmental Science & Management invites you to join us in June for an extraordinary learning and networking opportunity: the third annual state-wide building conference.

"BUILDING CONFIDENCE: FROM SUSTAINABLE POLICY TO PRACTICE" - June 21-22, 2004
Intermediate & Advanced LEED™ & LABS21 Workshops - June 20 & June 23

The registration deadline was June 13, 2004. See bottom of page for more details.

The CPUC will fund half the registration and dorm housing for all UC and CSU
employees. Funding is limited, so please sign up now!

With the implementation of new clean energy and “green” building policies and the redefinition of design, construction, and operation bottom lines, forward-thinking institutions are pursuing integrated strategies that use social and environmental issues as core competitive advantages.  The 21st-century goal is to develop environmentally responsible, energy-efficient facilities that promote architectural excellence, are resource-efficient, provide healthier settings for worker productivity, and incorporate smart infrastructure for continued operations.
 
This conference explores ways to improve the design, operation, and maintenance of multiple building settings.  To ensure efficient use of energy, conference workshops will examine best-practice examples of how to best design buildings to minimize energy use in the provision of comfortable indoor environments, to provide high-quality low-energy lighting, and to efficiently provide other energy services.  It will provide an overview of California campuses as integrated systems and promote opportunities to monitor and optimize these systems--saving not only the up-front cost of equipment, but the ongoing expenditure of energy over the lifetime of these new buildings.

From June 20-23, 2004, the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara is co-sponsoring "Building Confidence: From Sustainable Policy to Practice." This third annual statewide building conference provides a forum for sustainable building practices and related LEED™ and Labs21 workshops for representatives from over 300 public and private colleges and universities, state and federal agencies, and companies.


The Building Confidence Conference will:

1. Provide a forum to demonstrate progress in energy efficiency, sustainable development, and strategies for incorporating policies into institutional practices.
2. Challenge, motivate, and educate public and private universities and institutions in the areas of best energy efficiency strategies, sustainable building, transportation and purchasing practices, and new policies.
3. Establish an information cooperative among institutions.

Conference sessions are designed to be interactive, facilitating the opportunity for dialogue and exchange of ideas.
 
Based on the success of the previous building conference in Merced and the pre- and post-conference training LEED™ and Labs21 workshops, we anticipate at least 350 participants from the University of California (all 10 campuses), the California State University system, the California Community College system, private higher education institutions, government agencies, the private sector, and NGOs. As a result of this conference, California’s higher education institutions will be fully prepared to take the next steps in creating more energy-efficient building communities that incorporate sustainable practices on a large scale.

UC Green Building and Clean Energy Policy
 
In order to provide practical assistance in complying with the new UC Green Building and Clean Energy Policy, there are a large number of sessions that include information on these and related subjects.  Many of these sessions include examples of reproducible projects that have been implemented around the UC, CSU, and community college Systems.  These sessions are designated in the agenda as “Policy to Practice.” Many of the sessions will be a part of Training and Education efforts that have been initiated through the new CPUC-funded UC/CSU/IOU Energy Efficiency Program.
