Richard Palmer Presents at CIBSE 2020 ANZ Virtual Seminar

In the future net-zero carbon buildings will be driven not only by social responsibility but by policy and changing codes and standards. Now is the time to take action.

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) ANZ Virtual Seminar – 2020 Vision for a 2030 Reality, brings experts from both sides of the Tasman to share exemplar case studies of regenerative and net-zero buildings and practices.

It will also tackle future policy changes in Australia and New Zealand that building owners, managers and services engineers need to understand to minimise risks to assets, both existing and new.

Integral Group are proud to be sponsors of CIBSE’s 2020 ANZ Virtual Seminar and represented at this event by Principal Richard Palmer on the topic:

Delivering Net Zero on the Grid

Wednesday, 9 September 2020 | 4.30pm – 5pm

The demands of our climate transition in line with the Paris Agreement are for the large-scale decarbonisation of our economies by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050. This means all buildings must have a pathway to net-zero – tall buildings, short buildings, expensive buildings and cheap ones. Private buildings, public buildings, investment-grade commercial assets and urban sculptures.

While for some buildings, the pathway to net-zero looks like a reduction in reliance on our energy grids – deep energy efficiency and on-site renewable energy, for many the pathway will look more conventional and require ever-closer engagement with our broader energy networks.

This talk explores how electrification of building systems, renewable energy procurement and demand control are essential attributes for all buildings in the transition to Net Zero Energy, and some of the key trends in systems design, building ratings and commercial engagements that will mark this transition.
