Designing Toward Net-Zero Energy Commercial Buildings

Durban - Venue TBC


ASHRAE South African Chapter will host a technical course on Designing Toward Net-Zero Energy Commercial Buildings

Net-zero energy buildings (NZEBs) are those which, on an annual basis, use no more energy 

from the utility grid than is provided by on-site renewable energy sources. These buildings 

use 50% to 70% less energy than comparable traditional buildings. The remaining energy use 

comes from renewable sources, like solar panels or wind turbines incorporated into the 

facility itself. The course provides application knowledge of the design and operating 

principles for energy-efficient buildings and available technologies and systems to achieve 

NZEBs design. Building design strategies; review of current policy and regulation, energy, 

environmental and economic assessment of building’s performance; energy efficiency in 

HVAC, lighting, and appliances; and on-site renewable energy sources are topics covered.

The course will be a one-day event to be hosted in the city of Durban.

26 April 2022

Please note only 25 spots are open for this event.
