    Topic: The Path to Zero Energy Buildings

    Speaker: Paul Torcellini, PhD, PE
    Principal Engineer at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)
    Associate Professor at Eastern Connecticut State University

    Joint Meeting with NMAEE

         

    Presentation Info

    Zero Energy Buildings have come to the forefront of the “next thing” in commercial building performance. Questions as to technical viability and costs are seen as barriers to even producing pilots of these buildings. Questions about “what they are” are tossed about the literature. This presentation will look at what they are and what is needed to change the paradigm of buildings from energy consumers to energy producers. Design guidance provided by ASHRAE will be discussed and case studies of actual buildings presented.  Processes used by early adopters will be discussed. Many of the strategies can be used on existing buildings and new construction to achieve deep energy savings.
