The Student Pavilion is ASU’s first attempt and Arizona’s largest Net Zero energy facility. Simply, this means our goal is for the building to produce as much electricity as it consumes on an annual basis. We can accomplish this through a combined effort of a well-insulated building, natural daylighting, high efficiency equipment, and building users' participation in energy saving behaviors. The remaining energy needs will be offset by solar panels on the roof and from the Memorial Union shaded plaza.
The Student Pavilion was also designed from its inception to be a Zero Waste facility. With leadership from Zero Waste at ASU, we were able to achieve 90%+ diversion from the landfill during demolition and construction. As a result and with all of our partners here at ASU, the Student Pavilion is positioned to operate with 90% diversion from the landfill. We accomplish this through recycling, composting, sustainable purchasing practices, and building user participation.
Strategies to achieve Net Zero Energy in the Student Pavilion include:
Indoor Environmental Quality
Innovation in Design
