Zero Net Carbon Training with Passive House Principles: Deep Energy Retrofits – Strategies for Gut Rehab or Full Occupancy Retrofits

  • Apr 6-7, 2020
  • SUNY New Paltz campus/Virtual

Deep energy retrofits can be vastly more complicated than new high performance construction projects. Repairs and remediation far beyond energy improvements are often needed. The need to perform retrofits on occupied buildings is often the case or, for universities in particular, vacancy periods may be very short. Façade improvements can be hindered due to historic considerations, lot line issues and space constraints. This session will provide a variety of deep energy strategies that can be employed on existing buildings along with cost implications of taking a phased approach vs. a gut rehab.

Zero Net Carbon Training with Passive House Principles: Beyond Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs): Refrigerant Management in Design, Construction, and Operations

  • Apr 13-14, 2020
  • SUNY New Paltz campus/Virtual

Refrigerants that are currently used in most heat pump technology are considered serious greenhouse gases and can contribute to global warming if leaked into the atmosphere. Management of these gases are therefore crucial when designing and operating a net zero building. This module focuses on refrigerant management and the considerations that need to be made during design, commissioning, and day to day operation.
