Institute for American Indian Arts
This project developed plans for the Institute of American Indian Arts to further its goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 as established in its Climate Action Plan. The team developed a method for consistently entering data into the Clean Air Cool Planet Carbon Calculator in order to accurately measure the institute’s progress. A major step in the IAIA’s plan was the reduction of electrical usage. This project developed plans for addressing two aspects of this goal; improving efficiency, particularly in lighting, and providing sources of solar energy. Recommendations were made for future improvements and installations to reduce carbon emissions from electrical usage.
