Zero Net Energy Buildings
Marc Rosenbaum’s ‘Zero Net Energy Buildings’ has helped students produce hundreds of zero net energy home designs since 2011, many of which have been built.
Here’s the backstory on “Scalable Multifamily Retrofits”, a new free course presented by Chris Benedict, Margo Valdes, and Ian Shapiro, offered in partnership with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association.
Energiesprong and practitioners selected by RetrofitNY are developing standardized and scalable methods to achieve whole-building near-zero energy retrofits while maintaining multifamily tenants in place. Energiesprong, based in […]
Here’s the backstory on “Unvented Roofs Without Spray Foam”, a new free course taught by Kohta Ueno and offered in partnership with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association and Building Science Corporation:
Back in 2016, the Building Science Corporation team started a multiyear experiment, sponsored by Building America, on unvented roofs without spray foam or exterior rigid […]
Hampshire College’s R.W. Kern Center achieved zero net energy building status due to its passive solar orientation, high levels of insulation, airtight envelope and triple glazed windows. The building also includes air source heat pumps, and a 118-kW rooftop solar array capable of generating more than enough energy to meet the center’s needs on an […]
I am so excited to announce that renowned Zero Net Energy (ZNE) expert Marc Rosenbaum is back with a newly updated version of his best selling Zero Net Energy Buildings course.
It has been a long hiatus since our last session with Marc Rosenbaum back in 2016 but during its run this was one of our […]
No longer is energy consumption the primary basis for modeling solar projects, says Christopher Schaffner, instructor of HeatSpring’s Energy Modeling in EQuest course. More and more, the focus is on modeling carbon neutrality.
Certain sources of energy have a lower carbon impact, and modeling software can track this impact, says Schaffner, founder of The Green Engineer. […]
