Sustainable Architecture - Solar Seminar

Sustainable Architecture - Solar Seminar
Heating and cooling systems account for over forty per cent of commercial building energy usage in Australia with significant impact on building star rating. Solar energy can reduce building energy consumption, and solar resource availability has a natural fit with the cooling needs of a building. 

There are many ways to take advantage of solar. However introducing solar creates additional design considerations and requires greater integration of building services and architectural design disciplines. A holistic approach during design stage will result in easy adaption of energy efficient technologies in buildings. 

In this seminar, participants will gain an understanding of available solar cooling and heating solutions for integration with commercial and residential buildings. The seminar will provide guidelines for incorporating sustainable heating and cooling solutions while designing a building envelope. Real world examples from CSIRO installations from Australia and global installations from International Energy Agency task 53 (IEA) will be discussed during the seminar.
