Webinar: HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop (6/6)

HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop (6/6)

Webinar
Thursday, May 6, 2021
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
EST

What are the technologies of the future that will make commercial buildings more energy-efficient and climate-friendly? The Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office Commercial Building Integration team (CBI) wants to hear from you as we review 2021’s most promising, market-ready, energy efficient commercial building technologies.

CBI is hosting a series of discussions to collect feedback and comments on a prioritized set of cost-effective, underutilized, deployment-ready, energy-efficient technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will support our market transformation programs. Each year we invite participation from federal technology managers, renewable energy/ energy efficiency organizations, utilities, local governments, and industry and non-governmental organizations. This year, we specifically request feedback and participation from diverse and underrepresented populations.

If you think you may have contributions help guide CBI’s prioritization of commercial building technologies, join us for a HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop!

  • Tuesday, March 30, 1:00-2:00 ET
  • Thursday, April 8, 2:30-3:30 ET

Webinar: Getting to Net Zero Energy Through Strategic Building Operations and Plug Load Management

Getting to Net Zero Energy Through Strategic Building Operations and Plug Load Management

Webinar
Tuesday, May 25, 2021
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
EST

Plug loads comprise a much greater amount and proportion of total building energy consumption than they have in the past. There is a significant opportunity to reduce this consumption. However, these loads are rarely managed well due to lack of effective technologies and plug load management strategies. Properly managing plug loads were a key reason the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) was able to transition its headquarters from a LEED Platinum office building first occupied in 2017 to become the first Net Zero Energy certified office building in Texas in early 2020. The technologies used, the different stages of plug load consumption, and the strategies adopted to manage and reduce plug loads and overall building energy consumption will be discussed.
