Clean Energy Residential Buildings - Key Systems Energy Modeling
Event Description

Learn how Santa Monica’s reach code, along with changes to 2019 Title 24, are making it preferable to build all-electric residential buildings that are better, faster, safer and less costly than their mixed-fuel counterparts.

This two-day class will introduce attendees to the methodologies, key technologies and systems needed to successfully convert traditional natural gas end uses to electricity. We will compare all-electric energy designs to traditional dual-fuel designs in the California energy modeling software and analyze cost-effectiveness and quality of life reasons to consider all-electric designs.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How and why Santa Monica’s reach code is structured to promote all-electric buildings and EV charging
  • Benefits of all-electric buildings in terms of time, money, aggravation, health and safety
  • Key methodologies, technologies and systems used in all-electric homes (rethinking the roof, passive designs and water systems, heat pumps for space conditioning, heat pump water heaters, induction cooktops, and electric clothes dryers)
  • How to model all-electric systems for Santa Monica and Title 24 compliance
  • How the all-electric compliance pathway works in practice – prescriptively and performance modeling
  • Cost-effectiveness of all-electric designs compared to traditional designs
  • Single-family and multifamily examples plus remodels and ADUs
  • Advanced topics (supplemental heat strips in heat pumps, radiant heating, etc)
