Passive/Aggressive: Using Passive Means to Achieve Aggressive Energy Savings in Buildings

Tuesday, Oct 29, 2013

Can aggressive energy savings result from passive strategies in envelope design? Much attention is paid to complex building systems deployed in the name of energy savings, yet designers are applying as many passive strategies as possible in order to achieve high performance goals. These goals are common to the AIA 2030 Commitment, Net Zero, Living Building Challenge, Passive House Certification, or a client specific climate-action plan for carbon reduction and energy cost savings. How can the envelope, the architect’s most visible tool and usually a passive/static system, measure up when it comes to energy savings?

Sponsors: AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE), AIANY Building Enclosure Council & Con Edison

Speakers: Jonah Allaben, PE - ARUP; Hormoz Houshmand - Buro Happold; Sean O'Brien, AIA, - Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, Inc.
