Net zero energy buildings - ASHRAE DL Program


Topic: "Net zero energy buildings"

As building regulations around the world continue to impose energy targets in order to reduce carbon emissions and to conserve fossil fuels, designers and contractors must provide buildings which can perform successfully with less energy aiming for Net Zero. The EU requires all buildings to be Net Zero by 2019, excluding plug and process loads, whilst the ASHRAE Board have proposed Net Zero INCUDING plug and process loads by 2030. This presentation will provide attendees with an overview of the issues involved and the potential design solutions to achieve Net Zero in a cost effective, practical manner using feedback from exemplar solutions. New Zero strategies are proposed along with design tools, practical tips, and advice on suitable support information and case study examples.
