After completing the program, you will be able to:
Determine energy demands in buildings and processes for meeting needs of power, cooling ventilation, and heating for different climates and building functions,
Identify how mechanical systems for heating and cooling can be greatly reduced or eliminated through an integrated building design approach that considers building envelop material, construction process, and orientation,
- Recommend high-performance solutions for meeting energy demands and air quality requirements in buildings and systems,
- Assess approaches to building standards, economic incentives, and policymaking that can expand renewable energy utilization.
