Attend this session about natural light sources, daylighting use in buildings today and the market drivers for daylighting, including codes and standards. We’ll explain the differences between side lighting and top lighting and take a look at the following optically complex fenestration techniques:
-Tubular daylighting devices
-Heliostatic sun trackers
We will also discuss window shades, films, and coatings.

Net-Zero Energy (NZE) buildings are very efficient, produce all of their own energy, and can be built cost-competitively. These buildings are not the flying cars and meals in a pill that you expected from the early 2000’s, but they’re just as exciting.
First, we introduce what NZE is and where its being done. Next, a model for NZE procurement will be reviewed that allowed the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to build a number of significant NZE buildings on their campus for competitive prices. Then, we’ll highlight how lessons learned from this process allowed a local case study to be a success. Finally, we’ll try to inspire the audience and the OH design community to grow the local NZE community and strengthen OH’s NZE muscles!

Greg, a partner at Go Sustainable Energy, has extensive experience in net-zero energy, energy simulation, and energy efficiency consulting. Greg continuously educates himself about the state of NZE buildings, technology, and the state of the industry. This allows him to present about NZE concepts to the public. He is driven by his passion for NZE’s adoption and normalization and NZE’s potential to drastically reduce humanity’s reliance on fossil fuels. Life-cycle cost-effective NZE buildings empower owners to better control their interactions with a constantly volatile utility infrastructure. Greg received his BS (2005) and MS (2007) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Dayton (UD) and has authored or co-authored multiple technical papers in the field of net-zero energy. Greg is Go’s “barefoot” runner and makes sure that everyone takes a running or walking break each afternoon.
This class will discuss the concept of a “heat pump” water heater, the advantages over conventional type, gas or electric and the installation pitfalls that could arise. It will discuss the operating efficiencies by climate zone and explain where this type of water heater benefits the user the most.

This presentation will provide insight on how lighting and controls are changing the way we design buildings. Data collection and analytics are driving the end user’s decision making process and this data is often collected via multiple systems. We will discuss how the Internet of Things is changing the way we design building systems and how Lighting Controls can play an integral part in providing the platform to enable our connected buildings. From space utilization to occupant engagement, lighting and lighting controls are the perfect vehicle to provide the intelligent building infrastructure to not only enable the connected buildings of the future but provide a future proof platform to build upon.

The primary focus of this presentation is to provide a working knowledge of compressed air systems in industrial applications. The presentation is divided into two sections. The first segment will cover the best practices for air system design, equipment selection and recommended installation guidelines. How to properly determine the type and capacity required for a new compressor is one of several basic topics covered. The second segment of the presentation is focused on compressed air and energy conservation. The benefits of compressed air audits and air management systems will be covered in detail during the second segment of this presentation.

There are numerous underutilized and often overlooked tax strategies that can help partially or fully fund energy efficiency improvements in both new construction as well as renovation projects. These include incentives and credits specifically designed to promote green construction as well as numerous others strategies specifically for building owners and others in the construction industry. These tax planning ideas are often outside the scope of services provided by most accounting firms, as they require special expertise, tools, and credentials. This course will cover several of these unique planning ideas and how to appropriately leverage them to fund your next project.
