Tools & Design Strategies of Resilient Buildings to Achieve Zero Energy
Thursday, July 13 | 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT 

Jul 7, 2017 -- Buildings provide fundamental services, such as comfortable indoor conditioned environments with lighting, ventilation and temperature control, allowing our society to function every day. Natural hazards, including severe storms, earthquakes, and wildfires, can cut off energy supplied to these buildings, disrupting these core functions and rendering buildings uninhabitable. Often, buildings are not designed to withstand these sever weather events, resulting in significant, and at times, irreparable damage. Recent natural disasters, like hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, have highlighted the issue of architectural resiliency - the ability of buildings to weather disruptions and disasters. Zero energy buildings have a natural place in efforts to improve the resiliency of our built environment. Onsite energy production allows zero energy buildings to continue operating when grid power fails, but requires special attention and planning to successfully support resiliency. This webinar addresses the topic of resiliency and how to pursue zero energy as a part of that goal. The webinar will focus on key considerations that allow zero energy design to actually contribute to resiliency, and highlight the pitfalls and barriers that can prevent achieving resiliency. 
  
Office Worker Performance and the Indoor Environment
Thursday, August 31 | 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT 

Offices pose a unique opportunity for advancing energy efficiency. With relatively consistent activities and energy loads, energy efficiency strategies can be highly targeted for maximum effectiveness. This webinar presents best in class approaches for improving energy efficiency in offices. It will focus on the considerations that are important for the successful implementation of high performance strategies, as well as the "state of the art" and "state of the shelf" technologies available for office projects. Finally, the webinar covers the importance of the non-energy benefits of high performance office interiors, and the opportunity to use energy efficiency to improve non-energy metrics, such as productivity and health.

Benchmarking - 101
Thursday, September 28 | 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT 

This two-part webinar covers the practical realities of benchmarking buildings, whether for compliance with the many emerging benchmarking ordinances being implemented by cities, or for pursuing improved energy performance. Part I covers the step-by-step process of gathering and entering the required benchmarking data into the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, including the necessary steps for complying with local benchmarking ordinances, such as those in New York City and Boston. This is also the first step in assessing the performance of the building in order to tailor retrofit projects for maximum effectiveness.
 
Benchmarking - 102
Thursday, October 12 | 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT 

Part II covers how to build on the basic benchmarking covered in Part I. This webinar will identify the strategies and tools that can be used to take basic benchmarking information and build on it so that it can be used as the basis for a strategic approach to improving the performance of the building.
