Exploring an Integrative Path to Replicable Net Positive Energy Projects

Session T4B: Exploring an Integrative Path to Replicable Net Positive Energy Projects — Room 105
2:45 pm  -  3:45 pm

Net positive energy projects are rapidly becoming possible without adding considerable cost. However, there are not clear practices, processes, and metrics to effectively and repeatedly build net positive energy buildings. This session will explore the challenges and present a replicable process which can be used on all net positive energy building projects to consistently save time, expense, and improve performance. The Living Building Challenge Energy Petal and several case studies will serve as an example of a way to achieve net positive energy at reasonable costs.
