DOE Webinar March 18, 2010: Getting to Net Zero Today Through a Performance-Based Design/Build Process
February 23, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Building Technologies Program is offering a Webinar on Thursday, March 18, 2010, from 12:00-1:30 p.m. EST titled "Getting to Net Zero Today Through a Performance-Based Design/Build Process."
This summer, the U.S. Department of Energy will open the doors to a new national showcase building on the campus of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. The design of the 220,000 square foot Research Support Facilities focused on a building with very low energy needs offset with on-site renewable energy generation.
To drive energy performance, an integrated design/build team established LEED Platinum as a requirement and also set an energy use target of 25k Btu/square foot/year. Through this presentation, members of the project's design/build team will demonstrate how net-zero energy buildings are achievable and marketable now.
Target Audience: This Webinar is geared toward builders, architects, developers, building researchers and scientists, building component manufacturers, and retailers. Also, facility managers from federal, state, and local governments, military, and other organizations will find this beneficial, as well as architecture and engineering faculty and students.
- Jeff Baker, Director, Office of Laboratory Operations for the U.S. Department of Energy's Golden Field Office
- Bill Glover, Deputy Laboratory Director and Chief Operating Officer for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory
- Philip Macey, Design-Build Project Manager (LEED AP, AIA) for Haselden Construction
