Often, buildings are not designed to withstand these severe weather events, resulting in significant and at times irreparable damage. Recent natural disasters like hurricanes Sandy and Katrina have highlighted the issue of architectural resiliency, the ability of buildings to weather disruptions and disasters. Onsite energy production creates the opportunity for zero energy buildings to continue operating when grid power fails, but requires special attention and approaches if is to successfully support resiliency. This webinar focuses on the key considerations that allow zero energy design to actually contribute to resiliency and highlight the pitfalls and barriers.
