{Past Event} - Design & Construction Series: Energy Savings through Integrated Design

October 10, 2008 - 2:00 pm - October 10, 2008 - 2:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time
$0

Topic

Integrated design is a necessary component of any successful green building project, particularly in the health care setting. This webinar will specifically address the integrated design process from the perspective of opportunities to reduce energy use. The Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Program will present case studies about how integrated design can reduce energy needs in hospitals. A second presentation will review the role of integrated design in calculating lifecycle savings associated with energy efficiency strategies. The details of applying an Integrated Design Process - how and why. How to set specific, quantifiable energy design goals to guide the design process and assist in verification during operation. Why it’s important to set measurable energy saving goals early. How building simulation tools are used to determine building energy performance at all stages of design, construction, and occupancy, and using design simulations to ensure actual performance meets expectations. How others are using on-site renewables to meet remaining energy needs. Case studies-examples of how owners and design teams set -and met-aggressive energy saving goals (from 40% better than code). How Return On Investment (ROI) and Lifecycle Cost Analysis(LCCA) policies have been implemented at Universities and Healthcare institutions around the country. How effective decisions can be made utilizing LCCA and ROI study outcomes. How energy efficient design can be achieved by balancing LCCA data against other design considerations.

Presenters

Shanti Pless, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Since Shanti joined NREL in 2002, he has worked with the High Performance Building Team specializing in commercial building energy systems. He has facilitated many Integrated Design process needed to realize low and zero energy commercial buildings. He provided the modeling support for the K-12 Advanced Energy Design Guide. Shanti is currently providing energy efficiency technical support for various zero energy building and research projects, including the commercial and public building projects in Greensburg, Kansas, the Quick Start New Orleans School district, and leading the development of a Small Hospital Advanced Energy Design Guide for 30% savings. He also provides integrated design and technical assistance to DOE’s EnergySmart Hospitals Program.
