  4. 4. Treasure Island “Dashboard”
  5. 5. Treasure Island “Dashboard” Criteria Proposed strategies: LEED-ND based design criteria
  6. 6. <ul><ul><li>End Goal: Carbon neutral community. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All energy needs are met through renewable sources and all future development accounts for the generation of renewable power as part of its design. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Level 3: Energy Integration and Carbon Assessment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Integrated, site-wide energy protocol is used to identify synergies, documenting carbon content of energy flow from source to use. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Level 2: Preferential Energy Sourcing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adoption of development-wide strategy for reducing energy use. (e.g., Green power purchasing, on-site renewable power) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Level 1: Energy Efficiency </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy demands are reduced through good energy-efficient choices within a conventional model (e.g., ENERGY STAR products, increased building envelopes performance). </li></ul></ul>Treasure Island “Dashboard” Levels of Achievement

  19. 19. IJburg I Sustainability Dashboard
  20. 20. IJburg II Sustainability Principles
  21. 21. IJburg II Opportunities Matrix
  22. 22. Goal: Use 100% renewable power for wastewater treatment. Strategies: 1. Develop localized wastewater treatment to reduce the amount of energy used for transport. 2. Include renewable energy production in all new wastewater treatment facilities. 3. Capture waste heat and methane within the treatment process. IJburg II Goals and Strategies
  23. 23. Goal: All discharge from the treatment facility will support the health of the IJmeer. Strategies: 1. Implement technologies for recapture of nitrogen and phosphates before discharge. 2. Implement systems to reduce and eliminate the use of chlorine and other chemical treatment IJburg II Goals and Strategies
  24. 24. Goal: Develop facility phased in over time that is adaptable to changing technology. Goal: Develop new partnerships with utility providers. IJburg II Goals and Strategies
