Designing Buildings for an All-Renewable Energy Future - Introducing the Passive House Primary Energy Renewable (PER) Framework
 

When: Monday, April 24 | 12N - 1PM | Bring Your Own Lunch

Where: Gensler, 500 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA · (213) 327-3600


This presentation will outline how buildings can be designed to support a smooth transition to an All-Renewable Energy future. The fundamentals of Passive House will be explained, with a look at the three certification tiers: Classic, Plus and Premium Passive House building standards. We'll dig a little deeper into the development of the framework for Primary Energy Renewables (PER), and show how it allows for an equitable accounting of renewable energy credits for all building types, without penalizing urban density or less-than-optimum site orientation. Primary Energy Renewable factors will be explained, with a specific focus on California's three major cities.
