Event description

Description

Please join us for a free training taking us into a deeper dive of Zero Energy Buildings, Rhode Island Stretch Codes and Mechanical Operation.

Continuing Education hours will be available for Building Officials, AIA, BPI and Engineering RCEP

Session #1 Commercial Zero Net Energy Buildings & Rhode Island Stretch Code – This workshop will introduce the attendees to the range of low energy use commercial buildings being built in Rhode Island and other regions. Zero net energy (ZNE) buildings which incorporate efficient design and onsite solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to produce as much energy as they consume will be covered, as well as other high-performance buildings that achieve high energy savings compared with standard construction. Basic design and construction approaches will be discussed. Finally, the provisions of the newly introduced voluntary Rhode Island Commercial Building Stretch Code will be summarized.

This will be followed by a tour of Viessmann's residential and commercial Boiler Room training labs, and rooftop solar array.

A complimentary lunch will then be provided as we segue into a lunch and learn workshop

Session #2 Maximizing Condensing Boiler Performance - Upon completion of this session, the attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the effect of return water temperature on condensing boiler performance

  • Explain how outdoor reset control aids in maximizing condensing boiler performance

  • Discuss the role differential temperature plays in efficiency

  • Describe how the various piping arrangements and component selection affect system performance

  • Describe the role boiler/system turn down plays in efficiency
