1.5 ConEd Learning Hours
1.5 AIA CES LU
Around the world, policy makers and institutions have established targets for net zero building construction. But how do we get there? Space heating continues to comprise the majority of energy consumed by our buildings, despite gains in the efficiency of mechanical systems. Designing building envelopes that keep heat from escaping in the first place is the next step in significantly reducing energy consumption in buildings, in turn resulting in building energy demand that can more feasibly be met by renewables. The Passive House Standard provides a roadmap for this improvement.
