Webday Wednesday - Leading the Change Towards Ultra Low-Energy and Passive House Buildings
Title: Leading the Change Towards Ultra Low-Energy and Passive House Buildings
Date: November 25, 2020
Presenter: Marine Sanchez, C.Eng., CPHD, PHI-accredited Certifier | Passive House Specialist | RDH Building Science Inc.
High-performance, ultra low-energy buildings are coming to national and provincial codes, with Passive House buildings required in Vancouver and Toronto by 2030. Low-energy new-build and retrofits are key to meet our GHG emission targets and build climate change resiliency. Canadian practices will become leaders in this effort.
The design process for high performance buildings is fundamentally different and will take some adjustment. Required changes will be explored through case studies of large PH buildings (student residences, residential towers). Insights will equip Canadian practices with tools to integrate high performance into their core work and be ready for the future.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Explain the role of ultra low-energy buildings (including Passive House) in meeting provincial and national climate change policy and objectives.
- Highlight the shift in design process required to deliver ultra low-energy (and Passive House) buildings, with the necessity of an integrated, energy budgeting design process
- Describe new design performance metrics, the necessity of energy budget concepts, and how they can drive and inform design.
- List and explain additional reasons why we should focus on delivering ultra low-energy buildings to meet key future goals.
