Event Description

Planning a Zero Energy building can seem daunting, but this session will demystify a successful design and construction process that can put anyone on the path to Net Zero Energy. This session will cover the cost-shifting strategies of energy-efficient design with a focus on zero energy operation for Maryland’s first three new Zero Energy public schools:

  • Wilde Lake MS
  • Holabird Academy ES/MS
  • Graceland Park-O’Donnel Heights ES/MS

Prioritizing energy efficiency is possible, for any school district that is looking to provide world-class schools that can integrate teaching, learning, and equitable sustainable design,. The panelists from two architecture firms, Grimm + Parker Architects and TCA Architects, will share challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned for zero energy strategies, user behavior outreach, and ongoing occupant training. In light of concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic, the panelists will also discuss what measures can be taken to balance indoor environmental quality and deep energy savings.
