This course will present applications of new technologies and design concepts to achieve the goal of high-performance buildings, including net-zero or nearly net-zero energy buildings. The course discusses exactly what a high-performance building is from the perspective of various stakeholders. High performance is more than just energy efficiency, and this course addresses issues and methods for providing high performance in areas beyond energy efficiency, such as indoor environmental quality. The course also describes future trends toward high-performance buildings across the globe, and quickly summarizes how ASHRAE Standards (existing and those in development) address these topics.
