ZERO SERIES MODULE 02: DESIGN FOR ZERO OPERATIONAL CARBON

ZERO SERIES MODULE 02: DESIGN FOR ZERO OPERATIONAL CARBON
The ZERO Carbon Design series has been developed to help accelerate the capacity for meeting the enormous challenges brought about by climate change. To meet the critical challenge for a zero carbon economy, it is increasingly accepted that the target for a zero carbon construction industry must be 2030. Given a great number of buildings can take upward of five years from inception to completion, this means we must all be ready to designing to zero carbon parameters by 2025.  This is going to take an unprecedented re-engineering of our profession.  The seven lecture seminar series provides practical guidelines and case study insights which will enable practitioners to start the journey now. Some of you are of course already on the journey. The course is presented primarily by engineers and designed to be helpful for small and large practices.

ZERO Carbon Design Series

ENGINEERING SERVICES DESIGN FOR ZERO OPERATIONAL CARBON I 1 Formal CPD Point
Available On Demand I 12 month expiry

Net zero carbon requires an understanding of the relationship of energy demand, the options for energy supply and how these will change over time. This lecture will discuss how building design can affect energy demand in different ways in different climactic zones. It will discuss how the energy supply solutions chosen might be different in different locations and for different building typologies, including:

  • Hospitals, airports and similar 24/7 critical processes
  • Campuses
  • Mixed-use precincts
  • Commercial office
  • Hotel/residential

The lecture will discuss the economics of carbon offsetting and how the changing carbon intensity of grid power might affect the design decisions we make today.

Learning Outcomes

 

At the end of this presentation you should be able to:

  1. Consider the interaction of building design with the choices made for energy supply to the building
  2. Determine how building design in one climactic zone or another might fundamentally alter how you approach the energy solution to it
  3. Differentiate the balance of grid, storage and renewable supply between different projects based on their climactic zone
  4. Connect appropriate design principles to climatic zone of a project
