AIA+2030 Online Series
This new education series will inspire architects to meet the 2030 Challenge through design strategies, efficient technologies and systems, and applying renewable energy resources. Top performance no longer means more resources. The new AIA+2030 Online Series shows you how next generation design practices can achieve net zero energy and lower costs. Course 1 The 2030 Challenge: Goals and Design Processes Learn how architects can lead the charge and reduce the impact of the built environment using the Integrative Design Process and other strategies. This course kicks off a series dedicated to energy-efficient design and the 2030 Challenge, produced by Architecture 2030 with support from AIA, and sponsored by Autodesk.
Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) in 7 Climate Zones: an Analysis of How to Design NZEBs in Varied Climates
Case studies of Net Zero Energy buildings in 7 distinctly different climates compare techniques to effectively drive energy use down to reach net-zero energy. This program looks at effective techniques that have been used on a variety of projects to effectively drive energy use down to reach the goal of net-zero energy. The course will help design professionals to better understand the process for designing NZEBs, and how this has been accomplished in challenging climate zones throughout North America.
