What is AIA 2030?
The AIA 2030 Challenge is a national effort to encourage an industry wide commitment to prioritize building energy performance and reduce building-related impacts on the environment. It plans to achieve this change by a framework for standardized reporting so that every project and firm can compete to meet and exceed AIA 2030's annual energy use percent reduction target. Every year leading up to 2030, AIA will update the years the percent reduction until every firm participating in the challenge should be able to achieve Net-Zero ratings on all projects.
How can cove.tool help?
Every cove.tool project automatically calculates a baseline energy value (EUI). In addition to calculating your building's current energy use performance, cove.tool also calculates the year's 2030 energy percent reduction target as well as finds the current national EUI average for your building type. These three values are used to demonstrate how your building fall on the scale and the amount difference between between where you should be and what you want to avoid. Cove.tool has also built in the 2030 DDX Dashboard (AIA 2030 Design Data Exchange) so you can track and report your firms numbers and constantly update your 2030 Challenge projects.
