Intro to Evolving Decarbonization needs and BEM Implications

When: December 11th, 2019 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Where: Integral Group


06:00pm - 06:30pm : Networking (Food & drinks provided)

06:30pm - 08:00pm :

Presentation 1: Advancing codes and standards to meet evolving needs and BEM implications

Presentation 2: Carbon emissions-based Building Systems Design


Presentation 1: Advancing codes and standards to meet evolving needs and BEM implications

Energy codes and standards have long been used to set energy efficiency targets using a prescriptive or performance path with metrics based on EUI, TDV or energy cost. Progressive states and jurisdictions are exploring new approaches in performance based codes, standards and energy efficiency programs to set aggressive goals and targets for net zero energy and carbon. The plenary will present some of ideas being evaluated at PNNL and progressive jurisdictions to provide pathways to meet aggressive decarbonization goals and the potential implications for the building energy modeling community.

 Presenter: Supriya Goel | Research Engineer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Supriya is a research engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a US Department of Energy (DOE) government research laboratory. Her interests and responsibilities at PNNL include research and development of building energy codes and standards, rating system for existing buildings and simulation and development of rating tools including Building Energy Asset Score Tool and Total System Performance Ratio tool. She is a board member of the International Building Performance Simulation Association - USA (IBPSA-USA), chair of proposed ASHRAE standard for evaluating ruleset implementation in software tools, voting member of ASHREA SPC-211 Commercial Building Energy Audits and a consultant to Standard 90.1 Envelope Subcommittee. She was awarded the Emerging Professional Award by IBPSA-USA in 2018. 


Presentation 2: Carbon-Emission based Building Systems Design

High performance design presents a significant opportunity to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. As we move towards an all-electric future with zero or low carbon buildings through decarbonization of the electric supply grid, it becomes imperative to evaluate building system design based on a sophisticated time-of-use optimization approach instead of simplified annual calculations. Henry will be introducing marginal emission factors, the different types of emissions data available for energy modelers to use and how to use it.

Presenter: Henry Richardson | Analyst, WattTime

As an analyst at WattTime, Henry helps WattTime’s partners and collaborators understand how they can affect the electric grid and achieve the greatest reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, whether through location-based differences or automated emissions reductions. Henry’s previous work and education focused on building performance, especially daylight, energy, and water.
