Zero Energy Homes: Evaluating Post Occupancy Energy Performance
Eric Thomas, Senior Copywriter, IOOC and Publicity Coordinator, Sustainable Ballard
George Ostrow, Founder, Velocipede Architects
Nick Neid, Project Manager, Ichijo USA
A new age of high performance building has taken place, and zero energy is more possible today than ever. However, homes that are designed and built with aspirations that are too lofty do not always realize their zero energy goals. This session will examine three projects from our region that attempted net-zero energy that now have been lived in for over a year. Find out how each of these projects have been performing and what the key factors are of the projects’ success – or lack thereof. Learn what works, what doesn’t work and what some of the pitfalls are in designing and building innovative high-performance projects.
