Commercial & Residential Design Projects"
Presented by Jean Pierre Clejean
Date: Wednesday, July 1, 2020
Time: 12 Noon – 2:00 PM
CEU: 2 LU/HSW
This class brings attendees to the cutting-edge of high-performance design projects, which combine energy efficiency with solar PV and Geothermal HVAC systems and consume little to no energy. Through extensive case studies, you will learn how to achieve remarkable energy savings in your projects. The case studies will illustrate the elegance, ultimate energy-efficiency and low operating costs of these designs. This class further explains the prime position held by solar power and geothermal heating & cooling in the universe of renewable energy solutions. Learn appropriate system selections, their deployment and how to satisfy regulatory restraints.
Learning Objective 1:
Appreciate the need to employ high-performance building solutions that are either net zero and near net zero energy use, as a way to slow climate change through design and implementation.
Learning Objective 2:
Learn how energy efficiency combined solar electricity and geothermal HVAC are the most viable integrated technologies to reduce carbon footprint and operating costs of utilities and buildings.
Learning Objective 3:
Inform design professionals about financial and environmental benefits of leveraging renewable energy and energy efficiency in buildings.
Learning Objective 4:
Understand (through illustrative case studies) different levels of adoption, up to and including net zero buildings which are very environmentally friendly.
