Passive House California and 3C-REN are hosting a webinar on November 14th 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm
Carl Elefante was right when he said, “no amount of new green construction will get us where we need to go if we ignore existing buildings.” Four out of five existing buildings will require renovation over the next generation. Well-planned, deep energy retrofits ensure cost-effectiveness, longevity, and comfort.
This session will provide a series of “no-regrets” moves, using building science and data science tools, that every owner of a building or portfolio of buildings can take to properly prioritize investments in their existing buildings for the purpose of optimizing financial returns and building performance returns. Building performance components considered include energy/operating carbon, occupant health and wellness and building resilience.
- Attendees will be introduced to the underlying logic, strategies, tactics, and tools for planning and goal setting to achieve optimal decarbonization, indoor air quality and resilience in the retrofitting of existing buildings.
- Attendees will learn about the integration of building science and data science to optimize the retrofitting of a building for continued use — or for transition to a different use (office building to multifamily building for example).
- Attendees will also be informed about prioritizing the order of moving forward with the retrofitting of multiple buildings (each building optimized individually) for the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible outcomes.
