Jalayerian to Explain How Best to Optimize Energy Performance in Tall Buildings

Tall buildings are large energy consumers, including both embodied energy and operational energy. How can this energy consumption be kept at a minimum – or even reach net zero?

Mehdi Jalayerian will share his insights during the seminar “Optimizing Energy Performance in Tall Buildings: What Can We Do?” at the ASHRAE 2020 Virtual Conference on Wednesday, July 1 at 7 a.m. CT. He will present a variety of methodologies that can be used during design to optimize the energy consumption in tall buildings as the world is being urbanized and the number of tall buildings worldwide is expected to increase. His presentation will be accessible starting Monday, June 22.

Jalayerian is a veteran presenter at ASHRAE conferences. In February, he presented “Design Basis Variations to Counteract Stack Effect in New Tall Buildings.”

Incremental steps toward building electrification can help keep costs down for building owners and operators looking to reduce their facility’s carbon footprint. (Read about building electrification options.)

Why Should Building Owners Consider Electrification as a Sustainability Strategy?

Using electricity in lieu of natural gas can position a facility to reduce its on-site operational carbon footprint over time. That is especially true as utility sources such as wind and photovoltaic reach cost parity with coal and natural gas making the grid profile more renewable each year.
