[26 April 2022 Durban] Designing Toward Net-Zero Energy Commercial Buildings
ASHRAE CTTC: Designing Toward Net-Zero Energy Commercial Buildings
Net-zero energy buildings (NZEBs) are those which, on an annual basis, use no more energy
from the utility grid than is provided by on-site renewable energy sources. These buildings
use 50% to 70% less energy than comparable traditional buildings. The remaining energy use
comes from renewable sources, like solar panels or wind turbines incorporated into the
facility itself. The course provides application knowledge of the design and operating
principles for energy-efficient buildings and available technologies and systems to achieve
NZEBs design. Building design strategies; review of current policy and regulation, energy,
environmental and economic assessment of building’s performance; energy efficiency in
HVAC, lighting, and appliances; and on-site renewable energy sources are topics covered.
The course will be a one-day event to be hosted in the city of Durban.
