This 60-minute, two-part continuing education course provides an overview of net zero energy design. Starting with an overview of the various definitions of net zero, Clark Bisel, Senior Vice President at WSP Flack & Kurtz guides viewers through recent efforts in achieving net zero buildings, major differences between the new California energy code and codes used elsewhere in the U.S., processes for reducing energy consumption and generating renewable onsite energy to achieve net zero energy buildings, and an overview of major design constraints and limitations pertaining to net zero facilities. Ken Powelson, Project Architect at EHDD Architects, then walks us through a detailed case study of the Marin Country Day School -- the first net zero energy classroom building in North America -- and describes specific design and engineering strategies employed. He summarizes this case study with a series of lessons learned on this and other net zero facilities.
