Are High Performance Buildings Really Performing?
Friday, Sep 4, 2009
A Discussion with Drury B. Crawley, Ph.D:
Office of Building Technologies, U S Department of Energy
Recent studies have shown that a significant number of sustainable, high performance buildings are not performing as well as anticipated. What went wrong between the design and actual performance? How can designers create and owners maintain better performing buildings?
Dr. Crawley will address these questions and more. As head of the DOE’s Net Zero Commercial Building Initiative, Dr. Crawley is responsible for developing and realizing the design potential of net zero buildings by 2025. In addition to the large task at hand, he also manages the DOE’s building energy modeling research and development activities, including EnergyPlus, OpenStudio, Energy‐10, and DOE‐2. He will also take this opportunity to bring audience up to speed on the legislation and energy policy in Washington, DC as it relates to the proposed energy bills.
