National Grid Presents—Tools and Design Strategies of of Resilient Buildings to Achieve Zero Energy

NBI has been working extensively in the topic of net zero energy (NZE), gathering the best in class knowledge from the top practitioners around the country and combining it with our own primary research. NBI has also been evaluating the connection between resiliency and NZE, including the pitfalls and misconceptions that are barriers for projects and design teams pursuing resiliency or NZE. Join us for this webinar so that we can share what we've learned.

ZNE for Existing Buildings

This four-hour workshop will outline best practice steps and approaches to comprehensively enhance the energy performance of existing buildings to Zero Net Energy. The workshop will investigate retrofit opportunities in individual buildings as well as how advanced benchmarking can help prioritize opportunities across a portfolio. We will review technologies, approaches, processes as well as portfolio project prioritization methods. Case studies of building strategies and technologies will be presented including advanced strategies a design team can take to achieve ZNE on an existing building. The training will address operation and maintenance considerations, including energy monitoring for ongoing building performance. See details

National Grid Presents—Office Worker Performance and the Indoor Environment

NBI has developed programs with best in class approaches to improving energy efficiency in offices, especially in core and shell tenant improvement projects. During this webinar NBI will present what was learned in these programs along with the latest developments in LED lighting and plug load control options as well as research on productivity.
