Zero Made Easy: Advanced Energy Design Guidance for Office Buildings

Friday, June 7, 2019 | 9:30am – 11:00am | Pavillion 10

This session will introduce designers to the latest volume of the Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series developed jointly by AIA, ASHRAE, IES, and USGBC, with support from the US Department of Energy.

Following the success of the earlier 30% Savings and 50% Savings series, this volume of the Zero-Energy series addresses small- to medium-sized office buildings. You’ll be introduced to an easy-to-follow, step-by-step methodology to achieve this lofty, energy-efficiency goal.
