In this session, the presenter will set the table with a call for greater levels of sustainability. He then focuses on very practical issues and offers energy analyses of completed projects that shed a lot of light on the question of what works and what does not. Architects and other design professionals are encouraged to attend. The intent is to answer any and all questions the audience may come up with. Invaluable case studies illustrating these techniques will be presented and explained. This class explains the key position that solar energy holds in the universe of renewable energy solutions. Learn what are the best systems to employ, how these elements can be mounted, how to select the optimal location, and how can regulatory restraints be circumvented.
Learning Objective 1: Appreciate the need for immediate action on the part of Architects to employ net-zero and near net-zero energy solutions to their projects, in order to save the planet.
Learning Objective 2: Learn how solar electricity is (currently) the most viable technology to reduce carbon footprint and operating costs of utilities and buildings.
Learning Objective 3: Accrete pre-requisites and best practices for rooftop solar and appreciate their ability to produce stable, environmentally friendly buildings.
Learning Objective 4: Design integrated buildings that incorporate all the environmentally friendly parts of a renewable energy program, satisfying users’ needs while saving energy.
