Presentation slides from Design Team Commitment: An Architect's Perspective presentation given at the NASA Net-Zero Energy workshop June 5-6, 2012.
Webinar from March 18, 2010, on how to achieve net-zero energy performance through a performance-based design/build process.
"Several states and local agencies have integrated a zero net energy goal into their long-term energy policy and program strategies. This slide deck presents opportunities and lessons learned that can benefit states and local jurisdictions as they develop similar policies and programs."
This presentation offers strategies for commissioning and ongoing comissioning of zero energy buildings.
A recast of a presentation done for the Fairfax Chapter of Association of Energy Engineers in November of 2013. Presentation focuses on the the Advanced Energy Design Guides published by ASHRAE with association of AIA, USGBC, and IES with funding and technical support from DOE, NREL, and PNNL. In addition, the DOE Advanced Retrofit Guides are also discussed. Both sets of guides are available for download from this resource database.
