LaGuardia Terminal B Lands LEED v4 Gold Certification (Ind. Report)
US Green Building Council
Date: 2021-07-21
In the Empire State, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is reporting LaGuardia Airport’s new Terminal B was awarded LEED v4 Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The certification makes it the first airline terminal in the world to achieve recognition for its sustainability efforts under the more stringent requirements.

To achieve its LEED v4 Gold certification, the airport recycled nearly 100 pct of debris from the Terminal B Garage demolition for the new construction. Additionally, the terminal is designed to achieve more than 43 pct water savings and an 18 pct cut in energy costs. The building achieved energy and greenhouse gas emission reductions by using reduced window glazing area, installing light-colored aluminum membrane roof to reflect solar heat and reduce summer cooling loads, lower lighting power density, deploying daylight controls to adjust artificial lighting levels in response to sunlight, and utilizing solar water heaters.

La Guardia was opened in Queens, New York, on the site of an amusement park in 1939 as the New York Municipal Airport. Playing on the amusement park theme, the airport charged a then curious public 10 cents to park and watch airplanes takeoff and land -- yielding over $900,000 in the airport's second year. The airport is presently raked as the 25th busiest, and one of the worst, airports in the world and has 4 terminals -- A-D.

DOE Addresses Homes, Bldgs. Energy Efficiency (Ind. Report)
DOE Better Building Initiative
Date: 2021-07-14
In Washington, the Secretary of Energy has announced sweeping actions to power more American homes and buildings with cleaner, smarter, and more affordable energy services that sharply reduce the buildings sector's energy consumption and contributions to the climate crisis.

Residential and commercial buildings account for more than one-third of the climate-altering carbon pollution America releases each year, use about 40 pct of the nation's energy and waste more than $100 billion annually due to energy inefficiency, according to the DOE. To address energy waste and inefficiency the DOE Better Building Initiative "whole-building" solution calls for the following:

  • Investing in Buildings' Workforce of the Future -- New investments of up to $30 million for the American workforce will expand DOE's support for organizations -- including unions, trade associations, and educational institutions -- that train and support career pathways for a diverse, qualified, and well-paid workforce that enables high-performance buildings.

  • Advancing Efficiency in Heating and Cooling Systems -- A new national initiative focused on clean and efficient heating and cooling systems in buildings called the Initiative for Better Energy, Emissions, and Equity (E3) will advance the research, development, and deployment of clean heating and cooling systems like heat pumps, advanced water heaters, low-to-no global warming potential refrigerants, and smarter HVAC diagnostic tools.

  • Driving Adoption of Smart Building Technologies -- A National Roadmap for Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings will chart a path to triple the energy efficiency and demand flexibility of U.S. buildings within the decade -- worth $100 to $200 billion in energy cost savings -- by implementing 14 practical recommendations that accelerate the ability of buildings to both reduce and change the timing of energy use through smart building operations sensitive to broader grid dynamics.

  • Collaborating with Industry to Decarbonize Buildings -- The Better Buildings Low Carbon Pilot, a project of the Better Buildings Initiative, will work with commercial, industrial, and multifamily organizations to set commitments and share pathways to low and no carbon emission buildings.

  • Opening Up Windows for Collaboration -- The Partnership for Advanced Window Solutions (PAWS) will accelerate the national availability and adoption of advanced and highly efficient windows and window attachments that improve comfort and reduce building energy use.

    Started in 2011, the Better Buildings Initiative has partnered with leaders in the public and private sectors to make the nation's homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants more energy efficient by accelerating investment upgrades and products and sharing successful best practices. Better Buildings partners represent more than 30 of the country's Fortune 100 companies, 12 of the top 25 U.S. employers, 12 pct of the U.S. manufacturing energy footprint, and 13 pct of total commercial building space, as well as 17 federal agencies, 8 national laboratories, and more than 80 states and local governments.

    Old King Cole's UK Dethroning Advanced to Oct. 2024 (Int'l.)
    U.K. Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
    Date: 2021-07-07
    In London, the U.K. Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) reports it has advanced the deadline to phase out coal from the UK's energy system by one year to 1 October 2024. From that date forward the UK will no longer use coal to generate electricity, a year earlier than planned.

    The move is in accord with government commitments to transition away from fossil fuels and decarbonise the power sector in order to eliminate contributions to climate change by 2050. The UK is similarly calling on all nations to accelerate the phase out of coal power.

    The UK has made huge progress in reducing the use of coal across the power sector, with coal accounting for only 1.8 pct of the UK's electricity mix in 2020, compared with 40 pct almost a decade ago. In 2020, the UK went 5,000 hours without coal-fired electricity and earlier this year broke a new wind power record, with just over a third of the country's energy coming from wind. The rise in the use of renewables has helped drive down the cost of green energy, with coal power now being more expensive in most countries.
