May 18 - Green buildings are the new science-backed frontier of healthy living.
We have plenty of hints about how our buildings can influence our well-being. But very few people have the expertise and time to evaluate scads of scientific evidence relating to buildings and health. And even if we could, it still wouldn’t be easy to prioritize so much information to create wellness-promoting spaces. Let’s say we did, though. How could we be sure to get all the health stuff right without forgetting other green building priorities in the process?
In this course focused on green buildings and human health, BuildingGreen takes an in-depth look at rating systems and certifications including the WELL Building Standard, Fitwel, and beyond, providing an analysis of the systems designed to simplify and incentivize health-related priorities.
June 15-Going Off the Grid: An Introduction to Zero Energy Buildings
What are zero energy buildings (ZEB)? Are they the same as net zero buildings (NZEB)? The topic of Zero Energy buildings is a rapidly growing field with a tremendous amount of information out there. Clearly distinguish between the different definitions of a Zero Energy Buildings and learn how to calculate if a building reaches Zero Energy for the different definitions. Last but not least, gain general insight into the associated costs for Zero Energy Buildings. Your journey to zero energy building begins with this course!
This course is an introduction and overview to the rapidly emerging field of Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB). We will compare and contrast the different definitions of a ZEB as well as learn how to carry out zero energy calculations. Additionally, we will discuss commercial and residential strategies used to reach zero energy, renewable energy options, and the associated costs of ZEBs. Several ZEB case studies – both commercial and residential – will be analyzed throughout the course to highlight the information presented. This course is ideal for green building professionals and students interested in gaining an overview of ZEB.
