Described as a one-day deep dive into decarbonization strategies relevant to Chicago and the surrounding region, the upcoming event will feature a diverse slate of presenters from the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) community. (Read more about the Design 2 Decarb event.)
When will net zero energy (NZE) be a code requirement? How do the various NZE certifications differ? Can a large-scale commercial building achieve NZE?
Those are some of the topics three team members from ESD’s Energy+Eco group – Tim Zelazny, Hardik Miyani and Ken Griffin – along with representatives from Cove.tool and Alliance to Save Energy discussed during a sold-out Passive House Alliance Chicago event Aug. 21.
ESD is currently working on a number of NZE projects and has two Certified Passive House Consultants on staff. We are excited about creating NZE buildings that consume as much energy as they renewably produce.
