Volunteer for Labs2Zero

Interested in getting in on the ground floor to help develop various aspects of the Labs2Zero program? There are a variety of Technical Advisory Councils (TACs) that have formed and are still adding new members or are in the process of forming to develop and review the various aspects of the Labs2Zero program, as described below. Volunteers must be an I2SL or SLCan member in good standing, or an employee of an active organizational I2SL member (such as a university, government, or private lab owner) and fill out an application to demonstrate they have the qualifications needed for the TAC.

Each TAC has a core group of voting members and potentially some subcommittee groups. Additionally in time each TAC will start to hold “Forum” meetings approximately quarterly that are open to anyone interested without any requirement for I2SL membership. Forum participants are encouraged to review and comment on the work of the TAC. I2SL would like to thank all the current Labs2Zero volunteers consisting of the following core technical advisory council members.

If you are interested in applying to join the core group of one of our TACs please fill out this Google Volunteer Form. If you would like to be notified about upcoming Forum meetings please send an email to Jessica Shaker at Jessica.Shaker@erg.com and indicate which TAC Forum you are interested in.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

  • Energy Score TAC: Members with experience determining building energy use intensity (EUI), or familiarity with lab energy usage requirements and alternatives, can volunteer to help develop the Labs2Zero scoring approach, including the factors affecting EUI and alternatives for reducing it.
  • Carbon Emissions Score TAC: Volunteers with experience generating lab emissions inventories for and familiarity with sources of operational carbon, as well as an understanding of embodied carbon in lab facilities, are sought to serve on this group.
  • Assessment and Design Tools TAC: To determine the report content and insights Labs2Zero will provide for existing and new buildings, I2SL is seeking volunteers with experience in and familiarity with energy and carbon reduction measure for labs, as well as those who understand building energy calculations, air quality/safety requirements, ventilation, and lab plug loads.
  • User Experience Working Group: This working group will focus on ensuring that Labs2Zero provides the services users need; I2SL will be looking for members with either programming experience or users of the LBT, energy scoring tools, or emissions calculators to provide input.
  • Lab Benchmarking Tool (LBT) Enhancement TAC: Members who have participated in the I2SL Lab Benchmarking Working Group, or used it, will help suggest and review enhancements to the tool in support of the Labs2Zero program.
