Natural Ventilation in a Smart Building can remarkably reduce cooling energy demand in temperate climates—to Zero for almost the entire year.   The first part of this webinar will focus on the design and performance of natural ventilation systems through case studies of different Zero-Net-Energy (ZNE) buildings in California that aggressively adopted this design strategy, and used conventional systems. The webinar will also elaborate on what practical problems were encountered and the outcomes—i.e., what were the “lessons learned”.

When people think about pollution, what often comes to mind is the poor air quality in urban areas. While breathing in polluted air outdoors can have adverse effects on our health, the air that we breathe indoors can also impact our health. In fact, recent studies have shown that some harmful air pollutants can exist in higher concentrations in indoor spaces than outdoors.
