A Place in the Sun: Why We (Still) Need Solar Optimized Design

03/04/2015 - 16:00 to 17:30
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

As low energy, super insulated enclosures become more prevalent, some industry leaders question the continued relevance of passive solar design. Should we use the sun to help meet our heating needs, or have newer design tools, construction techniques and materials rendered passive solar strategies obsolete? This session's speaker believes that solar optimized design remains important and will show how an integrated approach to solar design can and should support optimal performance and occupant comfort.
